A sentry baboon sits asleep on a pole while a snake surreptitiously spirals up from a thorn thicket below. The baboon's pink eyelids give the appearance of the animal being awake.

The artist often encountered wild animals during numerous drawing excursions into the African bush.

This painting now hangs in an important private collection in Canada.
