Description

Print depicting three figures in a small boat, and small flying insects over their heads. The figure in the center of the boat is standing and holding a fan above his head, near the insects. The woman in the right side of the boat is looking up toward the sky, and the man in the left side of the print is covering his face with his proper right hand. There is a plant along the shore in the right side of the print, and water throughout the background.
