Interior of a ruined building, possibly a church. The roof is missing with the exception of a few horizontal beams. At the far end of the room, two columns support an arch with a small pediment. The columns are flanked by two statues, one of which is missing its head. There are four intact statues set into niches lining the walls. A ladder is propped up against the wall adjacent the arch and two men are climbing the rungs.
