Visual Description : Recto: Preliminary print of U990.14.575. A man stands bent over in the lower left, facing the right, with a long pole attached to his back which extends out to the left over his head. A line from the end of the pole runs downward to a feather or fishing lure going into a blue, black and red surface that may be water. The man has a small black circle between his lips, and a second one lies between his feet and the water. The right and top edges are bordered by elongated brown diamonds with a circular design (flower, spindle whorl, moon?) in the upper right and a pair of face profiles in the upper right. Printed in brown, blue, red and black on white paper. Verso, left side: Preliminary sketch of a killer whale design. Bellow it is a small tick-tack-toe game. Right side: Doodle of an ovoid design in centre and children's scribbling at bottom.
