High priest, wearing an odd headdress, refuses a lamb offered by Joachim, foreground. Assorted clerics and others look on. A man pushes something in a wooden cage across the table; another, accompanied by a child, stands to the side, holding a lamb. Chandelier hangs over the table; decaying groined vault visible in the background.
