Original. Great Conditon. Pairs of lumberjacks can be seen throughout this poster working together to cut down trees. These loggers are set amongst the oncoming winter. Already a fresh snow can be seen on the ground surounding them, and amongst the hills in the background. The trees on these hills have turned brilliant shades of oranges and yellows. This poster gives off the crisp sense of a delightful oncoming winter by using realisric shading and shadows as well as colors.
