Landscape scene of a river in a wooded area. In the facing left foreground there is a man seated on the ground with his knees up and his arms outstretched and resting on the tops of the knees, and he has a large basket in front of him. In the facing right foreground there is a standing man wearing a turban and carrying a basket in each hand. In the center is another man wearing a turban, facing away from the viewer and crouched at the river's edge. In the background on the other side of the river are two figures, one standing and one crouching and both are nude.
