Description

Print depicting two figures running toward a man seated on a large wave of water. Several horses are struggling through the water in the left side of the print, and a woman is running and reaching forward to reach the man seated on the wave. The man chasing her is holding a staff in his proper left hand, and reaching his proper right hand into the air. There is a body of water and a cloudy sky in the background.
