Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. The document is divided into three unequal portions. In the top portion, which covers the largest area, are two inward-facing birds, with a compass star in a circular frame between them. The birds are perched on leafy trees with one flower. The upper edge is decorated with scalloped shapes. In the middle segment of the document are two inward-facing horses, with half a compass star and a tulip between them. Semi-circular shapes decorate the border around them. The lower portion of the document remains unfinished; it is blank, with the exception of four penciled lines that divide the area into smaller segments. The entire document is enclosed in a decorative border.
