An engraving of a semi-nude man and woman leaning against a stone structure.

An engraving of a semi-nude man and woman leaning against a stone structure. The man leans with his arm resting on top of the structure, holding his head in his hand. The woman kneels against the structure’s side, one arm across the top. Her other hand grasps her breast as breastmilk flows from her nipple onto the structure. A bow and quiver of arrows rests between them. Behind them is a flat field with mountains in the distance.
