Documentary character engraving, reproducing daily life landscape scene. Image of Tijuca waterfall, probably from her bedside, dominating the center of the composition and extending to the bottom right corner. It seems gushing the confluence of the slopes of two mountains, which are seen clearings opened and various tree species, native or not, (pines, palms, etc.). In the background, a clear sky, with bright clouds on the left.
