A bewitched procession takes the artist to his gallows, in a wretch journey along the lonesome and slately paths of the wood. He invokes his death and a mocking music plays on. All of a sudden, all the universe around pours misterious figures. A shape appears up on a hill shaking his head; another one, as a mirage, staggers under the sun while backing up flowers and blood. The procession moves forward through ruins, fields and abandoned places, while the artist throws himslef to the sky. Prodigiously, a heard of donkies takes the place of the crowd. Tied up with a rope, the artist shakes, drags and mocks those who come across. Luminosa, his mate, decides to give him the deathblow but she fails. Once he got to the pillory, the artist dances his glad end, and the astonished nature lifts the leaves at his command. The real becomes a useless ornament.
