Macbeth in the foreground to left, seen from the back, faces the witches and the apparitions; by his feet, inside a coiled snake, stand a small bloody child and a child wearing a crown and holding a tree, behind them are the kings, one holding a mirror, and a large figure of a soldier, pointing; the witches sit on the far, Hecate in the middle, with her forefinger pointing upwards.
