The picture represents a blond-bearded Elijah (?) seated on the earth with his face between his bent knees turned to the left. His robe is represented by cardboard, white color, and black-contours as if he is rising from the earth. The earth is brown at his right and red at his left. At his right, just above the earth are dry yellow lines and above them a blue-sky and cloud. At his left, above the earth are red dry stains suggesting his fire carriage. On the left, at the bottom of his robe is written in Hebrew letters in brown colour part of the verse from kings 18:42 which is also the title of the picture: וישם פניו בין ברכו/"And put his head between his knees."
