Jesus in conversation with Samaritan woman who has an urn at her feet. She speaks directly to him with intent, one hand on her heart, one hand outstretched. He leans comfortably on a stone wall, looks at her with a knowing gaze and points to the Heavens. Both in robed garments. She wears shawl with classic motif trim. Foreground: vines and small plants near wall. Background landscape: castle on hill, trees.
