This painting has an overall blue and white palette, with pink and purple tones and shows a crowded group of people seated on chairs with tables. Most of the people are nude or partially-nude women. The main focus is a nude woman in the center wearing a top hat and holding a cane. In the foreground is a woman wearing clothes and sunglasses, her arms are crosed in front of her body. The men in the painting are fully clothed and each wears a hat.

A "Norton Abrasives" wooden crate is filled with empty rusted gallon paint containers with dried paint inside. A cracked rearview mirror is attached to one side and an American flag is smushed into one side of the box. A small toy platypus sits inside one of the paint cans, although the platypus is moveable; instructions to museum state that museum staff can place platypus where they please.
