Description
 
An intricate little scene comprised of multiple layers of polished and textured paper. A young woman and a sea captain stand hand-in-hand in a clearing. A rifle is laid atop a large rock in the foreground. A rabbit and two birds lay nearby (perhaps having been shot). A small dog looks on while at water's edge. A myriad of greenery with a trellis flanks the border of the image while a large tree with intricate leaves creates the background. Beyond the tree is a soldier with saber in hand. To the sailor's left are evergreens, rock and a snow cap or rapid water flowing between the soldier and the couple. There is a third man lurking to the left (head lacking). The detail on this work is exceptional with individually applied leaves, pearls and ruffles and everything else to be seen. Matted and framed in 7 " x 5 " gold frame. . Few specks for cut work lacking.
