Description

Blue and green image of a fawn in a landscape in an oval on beige paper. The creature is in the center of the image, shown full length. He has furry legs and hoofs for feet. He had a curly beard and hair. His left hand is on a rock and his right hand is extended toward the water. He is standing on rocks with a tree above and to the left. There is water in the bottom right corner. The image is in shades of blue with black and white, except for part of the background which is a greenish-gray. The oval-shaped image covers most of the beige page.
