Beautiful, detailed steel engraving from the picture by Sir Edwin Landseer.
The owner of the oxen has brought them to the tank for water. They are yoked together, and have most probably been at work in the streets. They have evidently satisfied themselves, or they would not stand with such apparent indifference before the water. The woman, with her hand on the back of the animal nearest to her, watches both patiently to ascertain whether she may now venture to lead them away.
Printed on heavyweight ivory/cream stock. Reverse side is blank.
