Description

An oval panel, oriented horizontally with a waterfall landscape from an unusual viewpoint from underneath the ledge from which the water descends in the middle distance. Between the rocks in the base of the gorge, where the water forms a pool, stands a man fishing. (This is a poor man's 'Kindred Spirits'.)
