Composition of three figures. On the left side two figures are depicted wearing costumes. On the far left, a male figure wears a suit made out of ivy and an owl mask. The second figure wears a cuirass with a skirt and cape made out of feathers. The costume resembles the dress often associated with the 'savage cultures' from the Americas. On the right side of the print an elderly figure with donkey ears is depicted who seems to be addressing the other two.
