An illustration of an old sour looking man with a long beard on the upper left. He is wearing a hunting cap and a blue shirt, and he holds a red apple and a light green ladder. Next to the man is an illustration of a coiled grey snake showing its fangs and red tongue. Below the snake is an illustration of a blue and red bird standing over its nest with two light blue eggs and smoking a cigarette. Below the old man is an orange and brown monkey looking straight ahead with wide eyes. The monkey is also holding a red apple. Behind the animals and the old man is a green rounded sunburst that resembles a bush, and the background is white.
