An acrylic painting depicts an aerial view of a pilgrimage scene on a hill. Religious figures in black and white robes and nude human figures march up from the right bottom corner toward the center, between two rows of cloth banners with religious motives. In the center of the image are plinths with human figure sculptures arranged in a circle. Beyond the hill in the background is valley with a river. There are rolling hills on either side of the pilgrimage as well as in the background.
