The scene fills the frame, patches of red visible on the ground and blue clouded sky above. A hooded figure in white on a white horse wields a sword in his right hand above his head and looks down facing a man holding a sword, his back to the viewer as he looks up. To each side, a dark skinned hooded figure in red raises a weapon. The man at left holds a blood-covered sword above a wounded light skinned man on a slain horse. Two slain figures in the foreground are surrounded by figures on horseback engaged in battle.
