Description

Black-and-white image of a large dog on a terrace, lying near stone statues. Part of a leafy branch is visible in the foreground, in the bottom right corner of the image. The dog is lying in the bottom left corner of the image and facing the viewer. There are three small steps next to the dog, which lead to a higher level of the terrace, and there is a wooden rail above the dog. On the upper level of the terrace there are three stone statues of figures.
