An elaborate wooded setting beside the sea-shore. Trees to right and left, rocks
at centre, and behind them a turbulent sea with rocky cliffs beyond. At centre
Hamlet is stretched out upon the ground, his face to the left, staring up at the
Ghost at left. Hamlet supports his body with his right hand on the ground. His
left hand is held to his head. The Ghost stands at left, slightly to right looking
to right but not at Hamlet. He wears armour, a helmet with the visor up and a
long cloak. His left arm is at his side and in his right hand he holds what is
probably intended as a sceptre, though it has the shape of a sword.
