Composition of the painting is divided into two parts. On the right we can see the oaks, under which the action of the title parable takes place. On the further planes of the picture we can see a carriage moving towards the bridge and small windmills.
The artist also showed a raging storm. The swirling dark clouds have been rendered with a range of dark gray and cold blue. There is no doubt that Rembrandt's drama of nature goes hand in hand with the parable, being a metaphor for the timeless fight of good against evil.
