Composition in green tones, blue, ochre, gray, red, orange, rose, white, earthy and black. Smooth and thick texture. Composition representing pioneers and indigenous in the middle of a forest.

From the left to the right is seen: Girl Scout figure, standing in front with legs apart, suggested hat and arms along the body holding the on the right hand one garrucha; the center, three pioneers, two back and front, all standing and wearing broad-brimmed hat. The on the left has the on the left arm up and the on the right bent as if to hand over his face; the center has the arms along the body and holds a rifle or garrucha on the right hand and the on the right which faces has suggested facial features, look in the direction of the first two and holds a rifle in his on the left hand. Broadband vertically in shades of green, blue, earthy and orange, suggests splitting the composition where you see on the right, the same alignment of the other figures, man probably Indian, kneeling in front, with the upper body leaning down, arms close to the ground and cupped hands containing something set in green tone; It still sees two kinds of short sticks, almost vertically supported in their shoulders and close the hands. Deeper, behind this figure, three indigenous, standing in profile to the left, carrying a canoe resting on the heads. They have arms raised, hands holding the vessel and legs apart indicating that they are walking. Background in very dark tones setting thicket represented by vertical geometrical areas and small light areas that suggest light penetration.
