    The first illustration shows the representation by a 'Chinese Artist' of a piano, at which a women is seated, and near which a man (dressed in traditional Chinese costume) stands. The subsequent illustrations show the artist's impression of the piano 'as it appeared in his dreams': the piano gradually assumes the shape of a dog with its mouth being formed from the keyboard and cover.
