A light-skinned baby with his eyes closed reclines in a padded basket with his head turned toward us. Small golden rays of light radiate from his head. The basket is floating on a river, surrounded by flowering aquatic plants and birds. Behind the baby, the river extends into a background of Egyptian ruins, including the head of a sphinx, stone arches, and tall columns. The ruins are backlit in soft gold tones.
