Hand-colored lithograph of the crew of the American whaling vessel Swallow from New Bedford fending off an attack by a herd of walruses in the bottom right foreground. Men in small boats wield axes and harpoons surrounded by glaciers in the north pacific. An American flag flies above the stern of the whaleboat on the left side of the print. Another whaleboat is in the distance at the right.

The title of the print is inscribed in both French (left) and Spanish (right).
