At left appears part of a village, a ruined castle, and a tower crowning a peak (shown twice: with mountains, clouds and evergreen trees; and below, with only mountains). At right is a broad valley with a village, a hunter and his dog with another figure and part of a village. The scenes are set against a ground of diagonally crossed lines, with trefoils at the intersections.
