20 Description A bull and a ram, both reminiscent of a man on all-fours, stand tied together at the center of the composition. A naked baby lies on their backs. To their left is the figure of a bare-breasted woman wearing a hat. There is a bird on the hat. A man with another bird on his head (perhaps a self-portrait of the artist) stands to the right of the bull and ram. Numerous inscriptions and letters can be seen along the lower edge of the print.
