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".
