An open cigar box with the lid showing. The open lid has six heads of figures, of them wearing tall hats and some with torsos. The text "Dutch Masters" is above their heads and behind them is more text that is made illegible by their heads. A row of cigars in the box is below the figures. Two in the middle have a decorative element. The front of the cigar box is visible and shows five figures' heads and torsos. To the right is the text again, "Dutch Masters." Both this piece and the oil on canvas version by the same title were created in 1963 so it is possible this one is a proof for the final edition.

This ink drawing on paper has a black wash ground, with two figures drawn in opaque black ink. On the right, a comic figure, in only boxers and a pointed hat, dances. His right leg has been kicked through a television set that he holds with his right hand. Scissors fall from his left hand towards what looks like a two-slot toaster on the ground. A black, horned beast lurks in the background, holding a phone overhead that has two earpieces, attached together with no cradle.  In the background, a headstone-shaped form silhouettes the dancing figure.<br /><br />
The drawing is signed and dated in ink (l.l.) "KOSTABI 1984".
