Allegorical landscape dominated by a jagged mountain, in front of which two male figures walk in opposite directions, one walks off to the left with his arms extended, and one walks off to the right with a cross held in his hands. Between them a man stands with his back to the back the mountain, his right arm raised and his left hand holding a document.
