Description

Multiple color lithograph depicting unclothed/nude/naked women huddled together bathing or crossing in the water. On the edge of the water, left, we see two figures lying on the ground cast in shadow. Beside these figures, on the ground, we see many different types of guns and rifles. Bottom left corner we see a vessel of some sort holding a trumpet shaped object. In top left corner we see a spot light searching the water.
