Image of realistic painting with purple hues and a man with a full face beard wearing a backwards black baseball cap, a black t shirt, and a brown apron and blue and white sneakers combing the hair of a young boy sitting in a orange and black barber shop chair wearing black and white sneakers and covered with a colorful apron with a mix of superhero imagery and barber shop icons. Both subjects are in a realistically painted barber shop with a wooden floor and hair cutting tools and supplies behind them, along with a mirror, a poster of Muhammad Ali and a poster of different hair style options on the wall behind the subjects.
