On the top is a painter's brush and pallet, in token of the profession of the deceased artist, and in the centre is a medallion head of Sir Edwin Landseer; in the lower panel beneath is a refresenttaion from his well-known picture, The Chief Mourner," in which a shepherd's dog is seated by the coffin of his dead master; on either side are the representation heads of the lions in Trafalgar- square.
