Reproduced by halftone, the print presents the image of a stag collared and chained to a tree. The tree stands centred atop a small mound of ground and its leaves reach to the top of the image. Most of its foliage is at the top third of the tree with only a few stray branches along the lower two-thirds of its truck. At its base, a stag with tall horns or antlers sits in three-quarter profile. It has a collar connected to the tree by a chain. An open landscape appears beyond this one mound in the background at the base of the image. In the upper left-hand corner, the artist has engraved his signature: “IVLIVS CAMPAGNOLA F.”
