A color print of three mountains in the form of a postcard, on white paper.

The print shows three mountains against a blue background. The mountain on the left is the smallest, it has a grimacing face, teeth showing and a hand reaching up to grab the center mountain. The face on the center is in profile facing right, heavily wrinkled with a large nose and a long, pronounced jaw, white lines cascade down the back and a gold earring hangs from the ear. The mountain on the right has the face of young woman wearing a gold tiara, chain and locket. The head is slightly raised, the eyes look to the left.
