The black and white image is of three men seated or kneeling in a work area. The center person is holding a partially carved chair back. The rungs and uprights are to his left. Another person sits behind them near a grass house.

The photograph is currently mounted on a thin cardboard sheet with the image of a red bird and "African Artisans" written in black marker.

There is a second print in an additional folder.
