Description

A man sits on a throne on a dais, covering his face with a long piece of spotted cloth or fur. A man sits behind him on his right side. A group of people are at the base of the dais stairs. The man that appears to be the leader of this group is wearing religious robes and wearing a beaded belt with a cross on it.
