Description

A monkey walks on all fours while carrying on its back another monkey wearing clothes and an organ connected to its mouth by a pipe. As the riding monkey plays the organ, a third one, also wearing clothes, blows air up the walking monkey’s rear end with a bellows.

The caption reads in the original French: L’organiste ambulant.
