[cairo] How can I draw this? (without blur hopefully)

I'd probably try to solve this with either constructing a suitable mask
and using cairo_mask() or by drawing it in multiple passes with
appropriate clipping.

You could just look at how the image was drawn originally to get
inspiration, like look at the SVG - unless someone did it pixel-wise in
the GIMP. Then tell them to use Inkscape next time ;)
