Description Fraktur-like watercolor painting with anthropomorphic lion

Fanciful anthropomorphic watercolor on laid paper consisting of a majestic lion with a somewhat human face. Beyond the lion stands a three-story red house and two trees. Three men hang in the air at the top of composition. The left-most, half-length man is pointing forward and down with a very stylized hand. Middle gent is also depicted as half-length and is pointing the same direction with a similar stylized hand on a greatly shortened arm. Man to far right points skyward with a stylized left hand. His right hand may carry something in his right or his right hand may be stylized differently. He is depicted with a full-length body atop tiny feet. There seems to be some transformation happening in the painting. The upper right corner is inscribed “B. Kinsley.” Clothing, architecture and paper indicates the painting is circa 1800. Floated on archival matboard and framed in paint decorated frame, circa 1840.
