A light-skinned baby sits, wearing a crown of leaves. A standing man in a winged helmet touches the baby’s left shoulder, his right arm pointed toward the sky. Kneeling and seated light-skinned women, nude from the waist up, reach toward the baby. In the lower right corner are two pale, reclining figures with eyes closed. In the lower left corner are five light-skinned embracing female nudes. In the background is a forested hill and a backlit, cloudy sky. A man sitting on the hill plays a pan flute. Two figures sit in one of the clouds.
