Information about author
A man sits "in face" on the terrace of a house and observes a child sitting opposite with his back to the viewer. In front of them are children's toys. Behind the terrace on the left is a woman; another woman with a sword in her hand sits behind the terrace on the right. All are dressed in traditional clothes. The terrace is surrounded by a garden with a stone lantern.
In the top right corner a calligraphic inscription in a cartouche and a serial number "22". In the bottom right is the author's signature, the stamps of the censors, one of whom is the Mayor of Tahitiro, and the publisher's stamps.
