Chromolithograph with some hand-colouring, depicting Erin as a woman dressed in a white gown patterned with shamrocks and a green cape, with a shamrock garland on her head. She carries a golden harp and stands by the sea as the sun rises. This is an idealised image of Ireland, and is in keeping with the aesthetics of the Gaelic Revival.
