Heads and shoulders of two androgynous figures: the female figure, almost in profile to the left, enfolds in her drapery and looks down on the male figure, almost in profile to the right, his eyes closed, a wing and three poppies protruding from his hair. The female figure's left hand, covered with her robe, is raised slightly. Night and Sleep is written below the image.
