Description

Sketch-like drawing of three ragged figures. There are two figures in the foreground. One of these figures is laying in the lap of the other figure who is seated. The seated man is writing something(?) on the head of the man in his lap. The man laying down is picking at the toes of the seated man. There is a third figure in the left background.
