He is dressed in the traditional Evzone uniform with a red fez, vest, fustanella, garters, and red shoes with large poms. The sky is painted a light blue and the Parthenon is in various shades of brown. The entire painting is painted with broad, thick brush strokes. The back of the plate is unpainted, but in the center is plastered an advertisement for "Gouvapuka Smart Furs Samartzis" in Piraeus Greece. There is also a metal hook for wall mounting.
