Plate 3, IX of the book, Très Admirable Bestiaire Fantastique (Very Admirable Fantastic Bestiary). A curving shaded line at upper half of the composition separates land at top from water at bottom. Beyond the line, at left, a grotesque male figure holding a long fishing pole made up of curved stick, string, and hook. At center, a human hand dangles from the hook, pierced by the tip of the index finger. Below the hand is a partial sleeve with cuffs that then transitions into the body of a fish splashing above the surface of the water, ripples below. Below, two additional hands and sleeves reach out of the water with circular ripples and shaded shadows in the water below. Composition contained within a black rectangular frame.
