Soft gray lines and shaded tones depict three acrobats on white paper. Suspended from the roof of a domed structure, a long trapeze bar holds three acrobats. At an angle and from below we see a woman seated at either side of the bar, in three quarter profile facing away from us. Between them a third woman grips the bar with her bent knees, hanging upside down, facing toward us with her arms extended down and outward behind her. Each woman wears a body suit and has long hair pulled back and tied with a bow.
