Two nude figures embrace and kiss. The man is seated with his legs crossed as he bends to the side to embrace the woman, his arm under her shoulders. The woman, kneeling beside the man, arches upward and backwards to meet the bending figure of the man. The smooth modeling of the figures is contrasted by the more agitated modeling of the base and the support on which the man sits.
