Upon the platform before the castle walls at rear right stands Hamlet. His left
foot is advanced to left as though he is moving to left. In his right hand, he
holds his sword, the point to the ground in front of him. He wears dark-toned
doublet and trunk hose with short cloak. He has elaborate lace collar and cuffs.
He has short curly hair and a mustache. At left, as if disappearing below the
platform, is the Ghost. He wears armour, a plumed helmet with the visor up and
a long cloak. His back is to the viewer, but his face is turned back over his
right shoulder towards Hamlet. Below is the inscription: 'Go on, -- I follow thee.'
