Description
A color photograph of a framed oval portrait of Samuel M. Jackson Jr. as it is hanging on a wall. As is explained in handwriting on the photograph, the portrait is of Jackson when he was 7 weeks old. The baby is lying on a white blanket on top of a small table, with a cloth wrapped around his midsection, his arms up by his face, and he is facing the camera. The photograph is in a large wooden frame with decorative embellishments at the center left, center right, and bottom center of the frame. There is a white spot near the baby's face made from the camera flash reflecting off the glazing. The corners of this photograph are rounded.
