A cave or grotto, looking out the opening to the moon partly covered by clouds: A man stands by a fire built on top of rocks. He stares at a figure in a dark niche, wearing a crown and apparently in an upright coffin; the figure raises its arm. A woman crawls toward the opening in fright. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/31/94)
