The image on the left side show a man in the stance called the High Guard: Stand with the left foot forward and hold the sword high over your head so that you are pointing high.

The image on the right shows a man in a version of the stance called Fool: stand with the left leg forward, hold the sword with the point forward and aimed at the ground in front of your leading foot, allowing a cut upward with the false edge, and against long cuts to your lower openings.

See Goliath page 62 and Meyer Page 7 for more on Roof (High Guard) and Fool.

See Talhoffer tafel 1 for another view of the Roof and a strike that can be launched from the Fool.
