Alexander the Great is seated cross-legged and holds his right palm out for his horse Bucephalus\'s snout. Bucephalus is all black stallion with reptilian blue eyes and a white star on his forehead, with a red rug on his back and gold accessories around his neck and rump. Alexander wears a gold oak-and-myrtle wreath, leather armour over an off-white elbow-length-sleeved chiton, and midcalf high sandals. The background is contained within a diamond shape: it depicts a pink sky and a full moon, seen through the trunks and narrow leaves of trees bearing golden fruit.
