Two small children dressed in traditional Chinese clothing, richly patterned with embroidery, stand looking to the right. The details of their clothing are obscured by painterly drips and misty areas of sepia, ochres and reddish-brown colors. A traditional Chinese folk art ornament is to the left of the children. A large red tattered flag is above the children.
