Summary:
A man sits on a low red, wooden bench with his forearms resting on his knees, bent slightly forward towards a standing female child. A young girl stands facing the man with a blue blanket held in front of her with both hands and has it slightly raised to her mouth. The male figure holds two pieces of a broken toy in his hands and appears to be talking to her.
