They have brown shirts and brown trousers with white plant-like designs. Each man is playing a curlicue horn. The other two figures are women. They wear brown hats with white hatbands. They have brown shirts with white "V" necks or necklaces. They have brown skirts with white plant designs. Their roper left arms are raised to their lips, possibly holding pan flutes. Their proper right arms hold cups.
