This hand-coloured half-page illustration is outlined in a thick, black square frame, centered above the text of “A Lyke-Wake Dirge.” In the left foreground, two pale-skinned figures, one in gray with black hair, one in white with golden hair, each carrying a lit candle, enter a gray-toned room. In the background of the room is a green-canopied bed with white sheets. A grey figure sits on a stool beside the bed, hunched over. To the right, a purple robed figure walks away from the bed. The artist’s monogram is in the bottom right.
