Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in profile, facing the left side of the image. He is holding a crystal ball in his hands, which are in front of his face. His gaze falls on the ball, and he is wearing a white cloth wrapped around his head and several beaded necklaces. He is seated in front of a dark background and there is a light shining on the crystal ball.
