Content (description)

On left a shepherd leans on his staff beneath a tree. A small male moves left holding a jug, beneath a leafy tree, from a branch of which hangs an unclear object. A nude male moves left with his arms outstretched. Then at the foot of a gnarled spreading tree a draped male stands on right of a table with sphinx legs, on which stands a vase. A small draped female with a large flat basket on her head stands holding a flaming torch. On right is a pine tree with large cones. A draped male with his head covered holds a krater, facing right, and cuts a branch from a small tree with shears. Around the tree are three mounds of rocks, on the highest of which sits a bearded male blowing a horn to left. In the foreground a dog sniffs at a ram's head that lies on a low altar. A male in the background skins an animal. A bearded male approaches from right, but it is not clear what he is doing. A dog crouches on right at the foot of a tree. On far right a shepherd stands leaning on his staff beneath a tree.
