Description

A bat-winged devil with a trident dance around a giant pot and using his trident to conjure flames to lit a fire underneath the pot. An angelic woman rises from the pot dancing. The film has taken a cue from one of the early dance films ever made, namely "The Serpentine Dance" and made it into its own in Méliès style. The movie is apparently derived from a scene in “She” by H.Rider Haggard.
