  • CAVI Subject: Int.: youth seated to right with hare in lap; on the wall, abasket; a hare cage (empty) with the door open{1}.

B: a bearded man leaning on his stick to right; a dog barking at a leopard sitting in the center on top of a cloth-covered folding chair [so L.-H.]; behind the leopard a youth; at right two further figures. [L.-H. thinks the leopard is a gift from the man to the boy behind the animal.]
