In the foreground at center, lying on the hard desert ground, are the bodies of four men dressed in robes and cloth headdresses. Two more slain bodies are seen at left, and two more at right. Behind them, a group of robed men work to lift the bodies of three more men onto waiting horses, as their riders look on. Two men at left, similarly dressed in robes, one riding and one helping to carry a body, are dark skinned, while the others are medium or medium dark skinned. A pale mountain ridge rises in the background in the glow of a setting sun.
