Description

An old man with a beard sits on a char beside a small path. He is surrounded by men and women. A woman wearing a flower wreath on her head places something in his outstretched hand. The group of people appears to be happy or celebrating something. A dog stands near the group and looks upward at them. A forest is in the background on the left side of the image.
