Black-and-white image of a young boy, a chihuahua, and a man. The figures are viewed from behind a pile of objects, such as a bottle in a bucket, books, and drinking glasses. The boy has ear-length, straight hair that covers his forehead, and he is wearing a striped, collared shirt. The dog is leaning forward with its mouth open, as though it is barking. The man has dark hair that is combed back, and he is smiling.
