Description

A group of people sitting to listen to two figures in the foreground. Left, a man in Roman military suit. His sword is out and pointed towards the ground. Right, woman is being very expressive and has her arms wide open. Her hair is covered with fabric. Center bottom, there is a child kneeling inbetween these two figures. It seems the child is a mediator with both hands reaching out. In the background, in the left-hand corner there is a man coming out of a tent to see what is happening.
