A pale woman in a gold robe sits behind the cherub. Behind the woman holding the child to the right is a smiling, light-skinned, bearded man. In front of the woman is a large copper bowl of water. She holds a white cloth in her right hand. Four more nude cherubs stand to her right. In the background is a lake surrounded by hills and houses.
