A print portrays several figures standing around a contraption. They are in a dark room, with a light from the center of the contraption being the only light source illuminating the figures. An older man stands at the center of the scene, pointing to the contraption below. To the left, another man writes notes in a book. Below them, two children look inside the contraption, their faces illuminated. In the forground, four other figures sit around the contraption, one looking up at the older man in the center.
