"A yokel puts his head through a trap-door (left), holding up a lantern and pitchfork. He gapes in horror at the sight before him. Two witches (right) sit over a fire burning in a bowl; one holding a broom gazes grimly towards the creatures they have called up: two bodies, one old, the other young, both winged, one having wings of flame, terminate together in the crouching hind-legs of a beast of prey; with these are the head and neck of a monstrous bird. Two grotesque goblins emerge from clouds (left), and a serpent hisses at the women."--British Museum online catalogue
