Description
Inscriptions/Signature

The rectangular frame has raised decoration on the front. It has a red field with small white dots and blue/white zigzags. There are ten white skulls with green eyes and noses and red mouths. There is green around the edges. There is a glass panel.

The picture behind the glass is probably not accessioned. It has a purple background with a bust of a skeleton wearing a black hat and crossing his right hand over his heart.
