The background of the window display is inspired by Shakespeare's "Macbeth", with an elaborate painting of a scene featuring Lady Macbeth. The mannequin is wearing a gown with the chinchilla fur draped over the shoulders, jewelry, and heeled shoes. The mannequin is standing with its back to the window. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "The Gala Fur... Natural Empress Chinchilla Cape... Fur Salon Fourth Floor...
