Here we see a sailor lifting his cap into the air as if to say, "Ahoy there!" Behind him we see the open water of a bay or harbor and a rocky shore. The action figure pictured here is a WWE 12 inch professional wrestler action figure from Mattel. The hat he holds is clearly a white felt sailor's cap which would likely fit most 12 inch action figures like GI Joe, Action Man, and 12 inch male dolls like Broad Ken. The image is surrounded by a purple frame with the words "free pattern" and the logo for ChellyWood.com at the top of the frame.
