Description: To the right on the battlements stands the Ghost in armour with visor up. His legs are spread apart and he looks down at Hamlet to the left. With his right arm swung across his body he points off right with his baton as though ordering Hamlet to move in that direction. To the left Hamlet leans forward staring up to the Ghost's face. Horatio has his arms around Hamlet attempting to prevent him from following the Ghost. A third figure, only partially visible, stands further off to the left gesticulating. In the background are the rough waves of the sea. The Ghost's head is backlit by the full moon.
