ships of the Greeks in the background, the Greek camp, where Achilles had been sulking, the chariot of Achilles with the dead body of Hector still attached to the back, a basin of water and jars of oil and perfume for cleaning and annointing the body, an incense burner sending up clouds of perfumed smoke to attract the notice of the gods, the dead body of Patroclus, wrapped in a shroud. His armour is at the base of the couch, the grieving Achilles, elabourately dressed, mourns over his friend, the wooden funeral pyre, built up over a pit into which the ashes will eventually fall after it has burnt for many hours.
