Figures in a landscape. A red male figure dressed in a beige military uniform is in the center. Holding his arms are two soldiers in blue. The soldier on the left smokes a pipe. The soldier on the right is sticking out his tongue. Both have rifles slung over their shoulders. There are two red dogs in the foreground and a green basket in the bottom left corner. The background is red and there are green trees. There are grey ruins in the top left corner.
