This is a dense but muted landscape painting. The lines are very well defined. The colors consit of muted greens and browns, with a bid of red in some places. There is a river flowing through the center of the painting, running down the landscape and toward the viewer. There is a figure sitting on a gnarled tree-raft towards the bottom left of the painting, with another figure looking upon the scene from the opposite bank of the river. There are ornate buildings present toward the top of the panting. The viewer can see a lone figure in an interior covered by stylized clouds.

A group of approximately five men, one dressed in blue robes and the rest nude, extend their arms and a white flag. They form a pyramid atop what appears to be floating on a raft in a turbulent body of water. Three figures are standing, facing away from the viewier, and two lay prone on their backs on the raft, one in the near foreground facing towards the viewer and the other facing away, with knees bent upwards. The painting is executed with thick strokes of gouache in shades of beige, gray, brown, blue and green.
