Two figures, one dressed in brown the other in pink, sit in a yellow boat set against a velvet-like purple background. The scene is from a photograph appropriated from a vintage "catalog" of Chinese prostitutes (who were often assigned flower names) in each is a circle that contains a passion flower in full bloom depicted from different angles.
