A man, perhaps wearing tights or some other body-hugging costume, sits on the ground with his back against a tree. He is playing a pipe, held near his mouth with his right hand and lower on the pipe with his left. He faces to the right, with his legs extended to the right and crossed at the knee. He wears a hat, decorated with what appear to be feathers. The landscape on the right is composed of a low hill and a grove of trees. A single tree extends up the left margin. Three birds fly in the sky above the text and on each side of the heading number ("IV").
