A young woman sits on a picnic blanket in the grass in a small garden. She sits beneath a black umbrella to the left and is surrounded by a large cheese plant and pregnant mannequin torso to the right and looks into the face of a bust to the front right, which we can see the back of, with chin resting on her hand.
