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 stands facing forward but upwards. His left hand is held high above his
head. In his right hand he holds his sword out horizontally in front of him. To
his left stands Horatio and to his right stands Marcellus. Each of these two extend
a hand towards Hamlet's sword. This is obviously the moment at which Hamlet forces
them to swear upon his sword.
