Description:Half-length shot of a man, a woman and a baby. The baby, dressed in a white tunic, is sitting on a column which is partly covered which a ćilim (woven tapestry-style rug). The beard and moustached man is wearing glasses, standing behind the baby and holding his or her hand. The woman is sitting next to the child. She is bending down towards him or her in an embrace. She is dressed in a striped, floor-length dress.
