His right foot can be seen in profile and his right leg is carrying his weight, the left is a step back and poised on its toes as the though the king is about to take a step forward.To the right of his left foot is written in tiny lettering "DE". Below his right arm and stretching out past it is a sihouette of the islands of Hawaii.
