Black-and-white image of a seated man, holding a wooden stick in his proper right hand. He is seated in an outdoor setting and there appear to be large stones in the background. He is gazing toward the left side of the image and wearing a wide-brimmed, straw hat. He is wearing a light-colored, dirty, long-sleeved shirt. There is a piece of light-colored, dirty fabric over his right shoulder.
