This extra large poster depicts The Winter Landscape with Ice Skaters by Hendrick Avercamp. Because of its high positioning, the painting is a snapshot of human - and animal - activity during a harsh winter. Hundreds of people can be found on the ice; most of them are there for fun, others are at work because of their dire situations at home. Avercamp is not afraid to depict lurid details: on the foreground on the left, crows and a dog feed on the carcass of a frozen dead horse.
