Painting of a man housed in a daguerreotype case. In the
painting and on the case is the letter "L". Behind the painting is
a cut out piece of paper of what looks like Amsterdam, based on the
houses and trees. There are men unloading clippers, and in the
shadows a group of men are dressed in 17th century clothes. The
man in the painting is dressed in an outfit from a similair era.
Behind the mat is a second hand made paper mat.
