2. A man with folded arms and a sad expression, dressed in mock 16th century clothes, looking towards a personification of Despair, crouched amidst dark clouds and tearing at its hair, dancing women beyond
3. A man in Eastern dress of a coat over his robe with a turban on his head and two swords tucked into his sash looking pensively down at a ruin in the grass at his feet, a landscape with palm trees beyond
4. An overgrown stone inscribed 'Finis'
