A vibrant scene with a group playing a game of blind man's buff outside a cottage, in the clearing of a wooded area. The blindfolded figure is seen in the centre, with a number of people surrounding him, with one young woman crouching behind him, so not to be caught. In the foreground to the right, two men are seen eating and drinking, gesturing towards the game. In the lower left, a dog chews a piece of meat on the floor.
