This piece may have been a section of a larger painting. It's subject could relate to witchcraft. An overturned pitcher and a bowl can be seen on the ground in the bottom left corner. Above is a peasant woman on her hands and knees and to her left, a young man is running towards her with arms outstretched and cloak billowing out behind him. He carries a hurdy-gurdy on his belt, which would appear to identify him as some sort of street entertainer.
