This painting depicts the interior of a room where four men are grouped around a table. They are painted as half-length figures, and their forms fill the foreground. They are painted in warm tones of brown, red and green and dressed in 16th century Netherlandish clothing. There is a king, wearing a pointed crown, who, with his right arm awkwardly crossed over his left, points to another man across the table. He has a furrowed brow and his mouth is partially open as if he is speaking. Next to him is a man looking downward, intently counting coins piled on the table. The third man pauses while writing in a book, his hand with the pen is stopped in mid-air, and looks back at the king. The fourth man, on the other side of the table, has his hands clasped in a pleading gesture and his eyes meet the gaze of the king. Items in the room and on the table such as books, scissors, a money bag, and an hourglass, are painted in great detail. In the upper right, a small outdoor scene, painted in tones of light green, shows

This multi-bladed weapon has four blades. Three blades radiate upward from the central shaft. The longest of these blades curves slightly downward and has a rounded, dull end. The second longest of these blades also has a rounded dull end and points upward. In between these blades is a short, sharp, triangular blade pointing upward. A fourth blade radiates outward (horizontally) from the bottom of the shaft, near the handle. It is a long, spear-like blade. The central shaft and blades are decorated with incisions that run along the edges, outlining the basic form of the weapon. The handle is wrapped in woven fiber.
