A tri-colored composition, white, black & yellow, contains a large gathering of figures interacting with each other and filling a vast space from immediate foreground through the middle ground into the background hillside. They appeared to be all dressed in similar yellow or white garments and head coverings; some are seated, others are standing. The figures are all highly stylized with stick-like limbs and very loosely defined bodies. The overall composition is dark and even black in the background with an unexplainable light or glow in the center foreground.
Gift of Mrs. Virginia Dehn
