This is an ink painting of two camels. The camels are centered toward the bottom of the hanging scroll with an inscription above it reading right to left (from the viewer's pov). One camel looks off to the right of the page while the other camel behind the first one bows down to the left and appears to be grazing. The main inscription is five lines. To the right at the beginning is a red stamp. At the end on the left is what appears to be a signature and two red stamps. Below the inscription and just above the camels on the left is perhaps another signature with a red stamp.

Some of the performers play instruments, while others tend to the camels.  Above both pages is writing by calligrapher Santô Kyôden describing the camels and their tour of Japan around 1821.
