On the table are all kinds of precious Mokoh toys: a jumping leopard, twin parrots, flying fish, boat fish, walking fish… She is holding a flower and an umbrella, and his hand is looking for a hidden toy. Her look is between horror and marvel. In the original photo, the couple is looking lovingly at each other. In this painting, Mokoh chose a more playful scenario. The man is pretending looking somewhere while his right hand slowly reaching for a more desirable toy than the ones she is showing him. Mokoh looks at life with humor, perhaps to lighten his burdens.
