A depiction of a young lady lying on a bier (a stand on which a corpse is placed to lie in state) which is placed on a rowing boat. She is covered with a decorative blanket and holds a lily in her hand. Her long red hair is draped over a pillow with Lancelot's shield hanging above her head. A man is seated in the front of the boat holding an oar in one hand and his head in the other. The boat is making its way along a river that is surrounded by trees.
