Description:Full-length shot of a woman and a boy. The woman is dressed in traditional Serbian town attire, wearing a 'libade' over a white scarf. Her hair is pinned up in a crown braid. An approximately ten-year-old boy is standing next to her, resting his right hand on her shoulder. He is wearing checkered knickerbockers and a jacket. Both are resting one hand on a small table with books. A painted canvas backdrop is creating the impression of the scene being set in a park.
