D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

Fox to right of center ready to climb tree; face of person above fox’s paw. Animals receding into image. Deer snuggling up against base of tree in lower left corner. Color image. Duplicate title and image (2004.D03.201 FAC # 4984.1), yet it is black and white.

Some of the most popular images for children were termed puzzle pictures, scenes in which viewers could find hidden images. This work contains a fox, horse, lamb, wild boar and faces of men and women disguised throughout the landscape. The work is one of only a few Currier & Ives prints that show the now-extinct passenger pigeon
