A ceramic sculpture depicting a group of 12 skeletons sitting in a booth around a table, each holding an object, possibly a candle. The table between them has a brown table cloth with a plate of round buns and another plate of oblong bread. The seats each have an arch over the top decorated with flowers in light blue and dark red. There is a tan or dark blue bow in the center of each arch. There is a red base with thin blue scalloped lines and dots for decoration.
