Despite attempts to connect this impressive drawing with a painting, it remains a mystery. The gender of the secondary figures is unclear and ait is uncertain whether they are related to the main figure. The figure on the left with its head turned to the side and raised right leg seems somewhat awkward. The turned head on the upper right has no clear relationship to the rest of the drawing. To the right of the standing man is an unclear sketch of two figures.
