At left, a young fair skinned woman with long wavy brown hair stands facing us, wearing only an ornate crown and jewels, a richly embroidered open robe around her shoulders. With a leopard at her feet, she points her right foot toward us, and with her left arm points upward to the right. At center, ringed by a radiant halo, the head of a bearded man floats in profile in mid-air, blood streaming down from its neck. A king and a queen sit behind her, looking on from their thrones, while a guard stands at right, blood dripping from his halberd.
