Quick, lightly sketched lines and washes of color depict a landscape as seen from above. At lower center is a lake in which various figures struggle to stay afloat. On the opposite shore, a rocky hill rises up and from a glowing cave at its base, a large three headed creature watches. At upper right, a figure falls head first in a cloud in the sky. The reverse side of the page shows a light sketch of a robed figure ascending in space with arms stretched out overhead. At lower left is a large star shape and above it are four smaller stars.
