Men at Jafnapatnam


Men at Jafnapatnam

Covitré, Jean

Two men with a cultivated field in the background.

To the left two cows under a palm tree. The men are barechested and wear cloths knotted at the waist and falling to over the knee. Both wear a dagger in a sheath and a bag at the waist and sport earrings in their elongated lobes. A jug and a basket stands between them. To the right a man is busy hoeing, while in the centre of the field two are harvesting rice. To the extreme right there is a small building.
