Composition of three masked figures, two depicted from the front and one from the back. The group of two figures on the left side of the print, a jester embracing a masked and bearded man, is depicted facing the viewer. The figure on the right turns his back to the viewer, but has an animal mask attached to the back of his head, making it seem as though he is looking at the other two figures.
