Female figure with her face down standing to the left of a tomb. She is leaning on the tomb with her left elbow, her left hand on her head. Her right hand supports and urn. Drapes surround her body and head and the urn. There is a small child at the figure's feet, standing on the steps that are part of the tomb. The child faces the tomb and looks up with the arms outstretched. The tomb is surrounded and covered with foliage. A set of palette and brushes can be seen on top of it. There is a Latin inscription on its side: SUCCEDET FAMA, VIVUSQUE PER ORA FERETUR.
