Description

In the foreground a figure with floor-length hair approaches from the right bearing a plate of lemons (?). Two figures stand looking up at the dangling figure above, one of them pointing to the activity. Another group of figures stand on the left, one of whom prays on the floor with outstretched hands. The musicians play drums and horns. Further people stand on top of the upper ledges of buildings on the right and left of the image. A temple-like building looms up in the distance
