This complex work contains several of the images which feature in Burra's output in the early 1930s - marbled pediments, many-windowed buildings, large and small figures juxtaposed, emblematic devices and a fragmented pictorial space.
Burra wrote to Barbara Ker-Seymer from the Palace Hotel, Lyons that he was, 'just crazy over bird folk now & in Lyon right this moment am studying bird folk from my window in the palace'.
