At left, in front of a tall brick wall, a bearded giant man kneels on the ground, facing the viewer and holding a horn in his left hand. Two figures, ankle high to the giant, stand at lower left. Light washes of pale red color piles of rubble and brick buildings that are seen in the background, and a gray jagged stone archway curves in from left, over the giant’s head. On the reverse of this page is a quick, lightly sketched version of this image in pencil.
