In dark turbulent waters under a stormy sky four nude sea nymphs support the body of a long-haired man between them on a white shroud. The face of a man with kelp in his hair appears between two of the nymphs.  On the right a bearded man with a trident in his right hand rides in a chariot fashioned from a seashell and pulled by two fished-tailed horses or hippocampi. Just visible in the distance behind the back of the rightmost nymph, a lofty tower rises above the waves.

An aerial view of land meeting water. The water is a deep emerald green and the land, a varying shade of ochre and brown. The lower section is the water and there is a boat dock on the lower right section of the image. The land mass is the upper portion of the image, but seems to be separated at one section in a horizontal format.
