At right, a family clad only in animal skin loincloths trudges onward into a bleak desert under foreboding skies at sunset. At far right, a dark haired man hangs his head, clasping his hands in front of him as he walks. In front of him, at center right, a pale skinned woman holds her long brown hair in her hand to hide her face. A small dark haired child holds its arm up to its face and buries it against the woman’s leg. Ahead of her, in shadow, a larger child turns back to look up at her with a questioning expression.
