Print depicting a man and a woman in an outdoor setting. The man is seated on the ground in front of the woman, his back facing her, and he is covering his face with his proper right hand. The woman is standing and tying a scarf around her head using both hands. Both of the figures are wearing ankle-length, printed robes, and there is a wooden bucket in the background, in the left side of the print. There is calligraphy throughout the print, around both of the figures.
