The dancers are dramatically lit from underneath by stage lighting. The dancer in front wears a garland of red flowers around the waist and in hair, her arm is straight out form her waist while her right arm is bent with hand to neck. The dancer behind her poses on one pointed toe and holds a small bouquet of red flowers in her right hand with arms upraised. There’s the suggestion of a third dancer’s elbow and a man in top hat behind her on the right. The background is loose marks of golds and green.
