Back: think wood with thin nails

Interpretation of marking causes me some puzzlement.

Variation 1 (Reading from right to left)
各園 - Geyuan - (To) every (kinder)garten
It may mean that this picture has been sent to several kindergardens by a regional education authority in several copies as visual aid. ?

Variation 2 (Reading from left to right)
園各 - Yuange - Unimaginable variation

Variation 3, (Reading from left to right)
園客 - Yuanke (Garden visitor) - Possible pseudonym
In seal script the radicals of characters are often omitted. In this case, if the radical 宀 mien - roof - (Kangxi radical No.40) has been omitted, it can be read 客 "ke".

If someone had a better idea, I would ask him to share it wih us.

With regards,
