The scene takes place within a gold arched frame, depicting Christ in the desert, standing in pale robes with his arms oustretched. Two sobbing women in long robes are kneeling at his feet, grasping at each ankle. There is a flat desert landscape in the background with a crescent moon in the sky, and a gnarled tree to the right.
