A bearded philosopher is seated at a table reading a book. On the table is a skull, and next to the table is a flask on a stool with books leaning against it. A figure in a dark robe kneels in the foreground holding a large candle. Next to this figure are two transfigured humans. Strange creatures are flying above them.
