Monochrome (green-tinted) print of a photograph of a statue, probably in bronze. The statue depicts a warrior atop a horse, holding on to a nude woman who is looking behind them; the horse has wings, indicating that the statue may depict Perseus and Andromeda. The statue is supported by a dolphin with a long, curving tail that has twisted into a large ball that forms the stand upon which the horse is mounted.
