A black maid on the left is holding a long fan next to Ahasuerus' head. In the background there is a wall carpet/a painted wall. A guard with a long sword is standing at the entrance. The top frame depicts five burning oil lamps in tripods, with a crossed arch above. On both sides of the frame 4 oil lamps are hanging from the cross barrel vaults of the ceiling.
