At center, a bearded man wearing a cloth around his waist kneels on the ground, with his hands at his sides facing outward. He looks upward at a dark clouded sky as tears fall from his eyes. A woman crouching beside him at left looks on, also crying. At right, a group of three men sit and stand facing him, gesturing with their outstretched hands toward him. The margins above and below the image show hand lettered text from the biblical book of Job, decorated with chained figures at left and right. The lower margin shows a bird at left standing on a snake, and an owl at right clutching a mouse.
