Probably an illustration of a fairy tale (compare BIRRC-A1190). Consists of four small papers glued together and has almost certainly continued on more papers that have fallen off. 5 men, another man slightly visible where the paper ends are holding on to a wooden stick. They are walking into the right side of the picture, on a meadow. They wear strange headgear, such as a saucepan tied to the head with a scarf and are all brightly dressed. A decorative border with sitting and standing hares surrounds the picture.
