Description

Four men are conversing around a small table. One rests his hand on his chin and looks intently at the paper on the table. The man next to him holds the long piece of paper in his hands and looks across the table at another man. The man across the table is pointing at the paper and speaking up over his left shoulder at a man standing and gesturing behind him. They are in a stone building with arched doorways and high ceilings.
