Hello,

If your clip art picture is an SVG, you can select the image and use Ctrl+U to ungroup its different components, so that you can then select and remove the parts you don't need.
If it's a bitmap clipart, you'll have to edit it with a bitmap editor (try Gimp) to replace the white box with transparency.

Regards.

Can you help with this problem?
