Currently not on display


On the left a mostly nude woman (Coronis) reclines on red and white linen with both arms raised above her head. There is a bloodied arrow lying on the ground at her feet. Beside her, a man (Apollo) is seated on a rock and leans down towards the ground where he is preparing herbs. In the background on the right, a group of figures are gathered around a lit bonfire. The scene takes place in dense woodland and a small section of sky with partial white cloud can be seen in the centre.
