A street or courtyard fills the middle distance. A handful of figures stand or sit in front of the buildings on the right; only a single cow at the right occupies the open space in the foreground. The low buildings are, on the left side, brightly lit while the structures on the right are in shadow.
This black and white print has a vertical format with a single standing figure. The figure, shown in profile, has the right arm upraised with palm up. He is wearing voluminous drapery and has a halo and bare feet. There is a long bladed saw on the ground beside him.
