The long-necked instrument has four pegs and four strings. The gourd body is decorated with polychrome figures and animals. The entire outer edge of the instrument is decorated with a geometric design.
The painting depicts a woman plucking the feathers from a small bird. On the table in front of her are other animals, a rabbit, more fowl, and a turkey. On the wall next to the woman are butchered meats and sausages alongside some metal chargers. Some celery and greens as well as a tall teapot sit among the dead animals on the table.
