Two full length male figures in a landscape. The figures are on the right. The furthest right holds the barrel of a rifle that is on the ground and wears a fur cap with a tail. He has a United States flag on his shoulder. The other figure points to the left. Both are in profile with gold halos. The horizon line is three-quarters down from the top. Black clouds are in the background. Two oval-roofed dwellings are on the left with cliffs behind them. The foreground has foliage (cactus, grass). The bottom fifth has white bones on black (underground).
