An old man in a travelling cloak stopping at the side of a road through a wooded, rocky landscape, gesturing with surprised dismay as he sees the body of the disobedient prophet lying in the path. The lion which has slain him prowls on the other side. An early state, before the relevant quotation from the Bible inscribed below title.
