The Massacre of the Innocencents-edit

Painting of a grassy cliff overlooking a forest and distant mountains painted in yellow. In the foreground, thirteen male figures in bright clothing physically fight with beavers and hit them with rifles. In the bottom left corner, a naked female figure hides behind a tree, with a beaver covering her body. In the far distance, the mountains fade to white and blend in with the sky. The sky is painted in white and light blue, with pink clouds at the top of the painting.
