Black-and white-image of figures in a landscape. There is a blind man lying in the bottom left corner. There is a dark figure sitting in the center. There is a figure lying on the ground with outstretched hands in the bottom right corner, beside a skull. There are three figures standing in the center with branches raised over their heads, as if about to strike the people on the ground. There is a figure in the top right quadrant with the right arm raised, seen from behind. There is a sack of coins to the left of that figure and fish on the ground behind him. There is another figure reaching in at center right.
