He is standing on top of a tall pole mimicing weather vane. "Brother Jonathan" stands beside the pole leaning on a walking stick in front of a "Specie Circular" tombstone and talking across the Atlantic Ocean at John Bull. The U.S. Bank is depicted in the clouds in the upper right. Additional dialog appears on the print.
