A merchant wearing red and green robes stands on rocky terrain surrounded by three wands planted firmly into the ground. They wear a white band around their head and a yellow sash peeking out from under the green fabric. They grab one of the wands for support, revealing armor underneath their robes. They watch three ships sail off into the distance, presumably carrying their goods off to trade and sell. The water reflects the bright yellow sky. Beyond the water, mountains line the horizon.
