CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A painting of a bird-like creature against a brownish-gray background. The creature's plumes are in such a way that it looks like it is wearing a jacket and a purple waistcoat. The colouring on its legs and feet make it look like it is wearing breeches and tall black boots. It has a little black hat on and a tie around its neck. On the right side of the painting is a tall, spindly tree with flowers at the base.
