The hard part was getting the shark to pose.
|—Garnet, "So Many Birthdays"|
The Old Gem Painting is a painting that made its debut in the episode "So Many Birthdays".
This was painted long ago for the Crystal Gems showing them in action with "old-timey" clothes.
Rose, Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl along with a few humans are seen on a dark brown boat at sea. Garnet is punching a shark, Amethyst and Pearl are helping a human that fell in the water, and Rose is boldly standing upright. They are all wearing old vintage clothing. The picture frame is dull brown and has golden edges.
It was found in Amethyst's room, after finding the source of a terrible stench. Steven said they looked like old-timey people, to which Pearl said they were thousands of years old. Steven commented about how that was a lot of birthdays.
- In the Brazilian version, Garnet says "The hard part was getting the shark to pose for the photo", despite it being a painting.
- It seems loosely based on a painting named "Watson and the Shark".
