Description

Three older men sit at a small table set with food and drink. Framed pictures are on the wall behind them. They appear to be arguing or discussing something with two people on the right side of the page. A woman wearing a bonnet holds a piece of cloth to her face, covering it. A person stands beside her, looking at the ground.
