At the center of this painting, there is a group of people arranged in a trianuglar shape. The figures are all dressed in colorful clothing, some of them are holding refreshments. At the bottom of the painting are two colorful roosters fighting. The figures get smaller as they recede into the background, though there is not a realistic spacial lanscape in which they stand. The background has a light rondel emanating from behind the figures and the rest is an aqua-blue. The painting is signed (u.r.) in red paint "Franck / Robuste".

A man and woman wearing white emerge from an arched stone doorway. The man steps forward, holding a candle in his elevated right hand and a yellow textile in this left hand. The textile drags behind him, hiding most of the lower body of the female figure. In front of this couple on a platform are two more figures, one wearing a blue jacket with coattails and holding a sword, point down, in this right hand while his left hand is raised in a pointing gesture above his head. In the wake of the figure in blue is a smaller figure wearing a brown tunic and holding a lantern. Larson 2/5/18&nbsp;
