Stylized head-and-shoulders bust of Jean-Jacques Dessalines, first Emperor of Haiti (1804-06). The sitter is shown facing forward in a military style uniform, with epaulettes and wearing a transverse bicorn hat with three plumes, apparently over an underlying skull-cap. The socle, or base, consists of a wooden column of oval section, carved as part of the figure, on a two-step rectangular base which is inscribed on the front face 'J. J. DESSALINE'.

The Artist: unknown
