Miniature scene of a white room that has a black confessional booth in the center. There is a skeleton dressed as a priest sitting inside the confessional. A skeleton on the facing right kneels outside the confessional below an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. He is wearing blue trousers and a pink top. A red figure with horns, tail and black wings, identified as Satan, sits in a chair on the other side of the confessional. A green snake slithers in front with its tongue out. The exterior of the scene is red.
