This storyboard does not have a description.
Macbeth: "The wine of life is drawn, and the mere lees is left this vault to brag of." Act 2, Scene 3.
Donalbain: "There's dagger's in men's smiles. The near in blood, the nearer the body." Act 2, Scene 4.
Ross: "Thriftless ambition, that will ravin' up thine one lives' means." Act 2, Scene 4.
This quote symbolizes the impact of taking Duncan's life has on others. The wine that's being drawn is the king's life being taken. As for the second half of it, it shows that from the death of the king, not much is left that is valuable. Thus, meaning that Macbeth feels rather empty and unhappy due to guilt that his actions brought him.
"There's dagger's in men's smiles," means how everyone has potential to do harm no matter how harmless they may seem. Which then carries onto the subject of how looks can be deceiving. Trust can be misplaced, and from that may come danger. Donalbain is fearful that what happened to his father may be the fate of his brother or himself due to this.
Ross, in this quote, is saying how certain ambitions can lead to unnatural acts in which he accuses the king's sons because they appear guilty by fleeing the country. He uses the 'ravin' piece to show an aspect of animal like behavior. By this, it means that the act that was committed was unruly and gruesome.
