William Shakespeare's Macbeth, 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 right, Hecate in the middle, with her forefinger pointing upwards. For Samuel William Reynold's (1774 - 1835) 'Engravings from the Works of Sir Joshua Reynolds'.
Whitman: Appendix, pg. 149, 56.
