At center, a bearded man wearing a cloth over his lap, sits on the ground raising his hands straight up over his head. He looks upward as tears stream into his beard. At left, a woman in a robe kneels and her long hair covers her face as she bows facing the man. At right, three men also kneel, bowing their heads facing the man. Dark clouded skies and mountains are in the distance. In the margin above and below the image is hand lettered text from the biblical Book of Job decorated with motifs of briars and mushrooms.
