In this vertical print we see what is presumably a family group of harlequins. At the back is a tall man in a pointed hat, wearing a mask with an elongated nose, playing a guitar. In front of him is a seated woman breastfeeding a baby. Next to her is a young adult or a child standing and gesturing to her with his right hand. He is holding an instrument and wearing a diamond checkered costume.

This photolithograph is oriented horizontally and created in multiple colors. On each side, at top left and right, there is a block of squares within squares, in a variety of colors—orange, blue, purple, white, pink, yellow, brown. Below these blocks are multi-colored bands of horizontal stripes; below these are bands of vertical stripes. At the center of the image, there are two photographic images: on the left, a woman with dark hair and light skin with earrings on a yellow-orange background, and on the right, a brown-haired man in yellow playing an electric guitar on an indigo-blue background. Below the photographs is a horizontal line of multi-colored vertical stripes. At the bottom in the center is a series of rondels, each with a cartoonish multi-colored scene: left to right, girl and floating, horned mask, a cowboy with guns, and a clown. The artists signed and dated the print at the base.
