There's an appropriate awkwardness about the composition of the photo. Cassandra, fated to give true prophecies but never to be believed, is almost out of frame and a determined effort is needed in fact to spot where she is. The others stare blankly at each other seemingly not paying any notice of her. On the left, the figures of the gods with the extended arms could be seen as pulling the strings.
