Title
Young acrobats performing a lion dance
Description
Two children acrobats and a man pose for a photograph in an outdoor setting. They wear carved lion heads and feathers on top of their headdresses. They have matching traditional garments and two of them wear straw sandals. The man crouching down in the middle holds a drum and sticks while the kids are executing simple dance moves.

Behind them is a stone wall and in the upper part of the photograph is a glass window; the building seems to be in Western style.
