Composition in black and white. Fast contour lines. Study of three Santas support in three vertical rectangles suggesting triptych. In the center Our Lady of Aparecida, on the left Saint Cecilia with musical instrument rope in hand, and to the right, Santa Luzia with tray on the left hand, on which are outlined two eyes. The design is scratched in "X" suggesting that the study was unusable.
