The drawing represents a string of five carts with grain sacks. They move one after another from the central right part to the lower left corner. Two oxes are harnessed in each cart. On the front cart there are three musitians. The first one depicted in profile is playing a pipe, the other two sitting en face on the upper sacks play violin and flute. To the poles of the high boards of the carts the flags are attached. They bear an inscription: "Communa di Froinshaft" (Commune of Friendship) made with Russian block letters. To the right on the foreground there is a group of children walking holding each others hands. The figures of other people sitting on the distant carts are visible. In the center, under the group of children the number: 732-23 is written with Indian ink.
