"A surgeon extracts a stone from a patient's head. The scene takes place in an urban setting, probably a market. An aged helper holds the patient's head, along with a youth, who prepares the unguents. Meanwhile, another patient grimaces grotesquely while waiting his turn. Hemessen criticizes the defrauding of patients by depicting the doctor with a sarcastic expression that reveals him as an impostor whose only interest is money"1.
