On a rocky outcrop near a shoreline, a wounded man sits bare-chested, facing the viewer, wearing a cloth around his waist and a bandage around his left ankle. He holds an arrow in his right hand and looks to his left at a soldier who is speaking to him. The soldier is dressed in chain mail and wears a sword at his waist. With his back to us, he looks left toward the wounded man, gesturing to him with his left hand, and gesturing behind him toward the sea with his right. At right, three more soldiers look on.
