The bullfighter Martincho stands on a table draped in a long cloth with his feet shackled. Several men stand together and watch as the bull approaches Martincho. The audience is visible in the background.
Two men stand on a ladder leading to a gallows. Their hands are bound and two other men stand to either side. On the right, a clergyman stands gesturing with his left hand. In the background, two hanged men swing from the gallows.
