Watercolor on paper depicting a historical scene of three indigenous peoples standing on the shoreline observing an approaching ship. The tallest figure has a headdress with red and green feathers. The three male figures wear white loincloths while the fourth female figure emerges from the bottom wearing a patterned headscarf and blue shirt and skirt. The scene is illustration-like.
