Various activities around the Safe House, 1597
Veer, Gerrit de
In the foreground, one of the open boats is dug out of the snow and brought to the Safe House to ready it for the return journey (29 May 1597). In the background we see various other activities, such as making sleds and boiling out and drying clothes.
