A soldier with a long stick in his left hand stands in front of wall baiting a muzzled and chained brown bear that stands upright and facing him, paws curled. Off to the right, a second soldier stands behind the first and plays a horn; he also holds a stick in the crock of his left arm. On the far left, a third man, with his back to the viewer, observes the bear, his right arm bent suggesting that he is addressing a comment to the soldier?
