Black-and-white image of a young boy and a woman. The boy is standing in the left side of the image, and he is leaning against a wooden post in the right side of the image with his proper left arm. The woman is kneeling in the right side of the image, and her proper left hand is on her chin. She is wearing a dark shawl that is draped over her head and around her shoulders. The boy is wearing a wide-brimmed straw hat, and a patterned poncho and light-colored pants. Both of the figures are gazing toward the right side of the image.
