Image is of a woman towards the front centre of the image. She is holding one hand under her chin, while the other is resting on a book that is on a desk surrounded by various objects (sword, dagger). Her head is turned to the left, and you can only see a profile view of her face. A heart-shaped candle to her left burns and out of the swirling smoke a collage of images fill the space behind her, at which she looks over her shoulder. The collage of images is not within any particular setting so the reader gets the impression the images are imaginary or spiritual. In the top left corner of the image, there are two men. One is lying on a bench, while the other is standing behind him. Moving to the top right corner, there is a figure holding a baby. Coming out from the right edge of the picture is an arm holding a sword. Below this are an old man and young woman. The man is looking up, while the female is looking to the front, she is carrying a harp. The image is vertically displayed within a bounding box of two thin, black lines. The engraver’s signature “Hare Sc” is in the bottom-right corner.
