At the centre of the canvas is a table with a red egg on it. On top of the table and plate are forks positioned in the shape of a cross, their handles pointing towards the figures grouped around the table. In the distant background, a city is in flames. A featherless chicken with a knife stuck in its back flies away from the city. An obese cat lies under the table; to its right is the large, egg-shaped head of a man wearing a hat. Behind the table on the right, a lion wearing a crown is lying on a pair of stacked books. Behind the table on the left, we can see the head of screaming man, who is also wearing a hat. Two rats are scampering around the top of the table with the red egg.
