A horse stands on naturalistic rocky arch with a shallow cascading fountain below that is flanked by park-like walls. A lion sits in left middle ground, while a man in lower right foreground looks upward at the arch. There are trees and low vegetation throughout the composition, which is framed by a ruled border of pen and brown ink on three sides.
