Decoration To the left of the scene is a semi-naked male figure appears to be sitting upon a table, there is a second male figure on his knees in front of the other fully clothes and bearded he seems to be much elder than the first. This figure is grasping the seated figures knees possibly in an act of supplication. Behind these figures two further male figures on look, one of these throws his hand out, he's mouth is open suggesting he is surprised or angry. The background setting is heavily draped so is perhaps the interior of a tent.
