A group of figures in classical drapery are arranged between two columns and underneath a piece of draped swag ornamented with garland. A coat of arms emanating light is visible behind the swag. At the bottom left, a skeleton almost completely covered in drapery pulls down a larger piece of swag that had been concealing the figural group.
