A sculpture of Abel is lying supine painted to represent blood on a platform in a tree and another sculpture representing his wife stands over him. An angel reaches down from above. Two other sculptures are around the platform. Dinsmoor's house is in the background to the left. There is handwriting in the bottom of the card.
