Monochromatic image of a man in a dark circle on a light gray square. Below is a narrow band of cream with two lines of text centered in the middle. The top line is larger than the bottom. The man is facing the viewer and holds a piece of food in both hands that he has in his mouth. He is wearing a hat and has a staff tucked in to the crook of his right arm.
