The tomb is inscribed "La Famile [sic, Famille] De Pajaud" and beneath are four names listed: "Sidney/ William/ Albert/ Renee). The scene evokes a New Orleans jazz funeral. The man holds his instrument at his waist, his eyes downcast. His hat reads "Eureka;" his belt also includes an inscription that is difficult to read.
