Sir William Fox as Don Quixote on horseback, about to be tipped off his horse. He has a water bottle at his waist, marked Aqua pura, a reference to his strong support for temperance. At his feet are the words 'Local opposition' and 'Farmers' votes'. A dragon (with a human face) surrounded by several broken bottles is on the right, threatening Fox. Fox lost his Rangitikei seat to J. Stevens in 1881.
