At center, a single-masted boat is tied to a ring on the dock on the shore of a river. A crowd of figures is herded on to the boat by a creature in tattered clothes who stands at the center of the boat, wielding a large paddle in one hand. Behind him the boat is already crowded with dozens of tightly crammed figures. Behind the people on shore, two robed figures look on from on top of a rocky hill. In the distance at left other figures climb down another tall hill.
