In the foreground at left, two robed figures in profile stand in a small boat floating in a river. One of the two leans forward, pushing down on the head of a man emerging from the water who shouts and raises his hands over his head. At right, another figure, a bearded man, also stands in the water leaning into the front of the boat and looking on. In the distance on the other side of the river, a cone shaped tower can be seen on the shore, and rolling hills beyond that.
