Two images of mixed-race couples. On the left: Bust view of couple kissing, blonde man's back of head seen, blocking the complete view of a darker-skinned woman with traditional Japanese hairpins visible. On the right: Bust view of couple each facing outwards, caricature of a Japanese man with large buck teeth squinting through round glasses, next to comic-strip style blonde, blue-eyed woman.
