On left, a woman wearing a blue robe carries soap, towel and a bottle in a bowl in her right hand and holds the hand of a red-robed little girl in her left as they walk towards a shower room. Her hair tied back, the woman looks down over her right shoulder at the little girl who holds a little cup in her left hand. Both have robes tied with bows in front and wear color coordinated geta. Directly behind them on the right stand three giant sunflowers and in the distance barracks are visible.
