Description:
Oil on canvas painting depicting a thin male figure with a rope loosly wrapped around his neck; the opposite end of the rope is attached to a large weight lying between the figure's legs as he holds spherical-shaped weights in each hand while standing on a wooden platform; a light-haired male figure stands in the foreground on the platform wearing a blue bodysuit holding a small bouquet of red flowers as other figures observe the scene in the audience.
