The seated figure of Christ and the horned figure Satan offering two full purses are dwarfed by the magnificance of the landscape. The landscape appears to be far from the wilderness of the title; herons and rabbits sit at the banks of the river, a flock of cows is driven over a distant hill by two cow herds, other figures seem to be walking to a distant town. This image is typical of Brill's arcadian landscapes in which the main characters seem almost incidental.
