Everything about this painting implies motion from limbs flailing to weapons being thrown.
Motion is made in this picture through the fire and its smoke blowing away from the crowd.
The texture of the red cloudy sky shows movement, as well as the collapsing statues and the people in motion running.
The horse mid-step, as well as the lines portraying noise from the horn creates a sense of movement.
The texture of water in the basin shows motion as the mother dips her hand in. The baby shows movement as he tries to step away from his mother.
The women are tilted almost as if they are falling down in motion.
The bend of the legs and arms show that the person is dancing, and also the the strokes around the figure suggest a feeling of movement.
The motion in this picture is the crashing of the waves against the shore.
