Object:Young people in folk attire
Description:Full length studio group portrait of four girls and one boy. All of them are wearing traditional attire. They are posing in front of a painted canvas backdrop, which creates the illusion of the scene being set in nature. The boy is sitting on an artificial rock, playing the flute. To his left, three girls are sitting on a wooden bench, leaning on each other. Two of them are holding flowers or greenery. A fourth girl is standing behind them, resting her left hand on the shoulder of one of the girls seated in front of her. All of the girls have flowers in their hair.
