Description
Depiction of six women in aprons and caps dancing in a circle, accompanied by a male musician playing a hurdy-gurdy. The woman at far left holds a filled glass in her left hand. Their occupation is implied by the surrounding details. At the top of the sheet, several women are shown with yokes across their shoulders, enabling them to bear heavy loads; one woman carries a basket on her back. At bottom left, a woman carries a burden on her shoulder, while at bottom right a woman appears to reach into a tank of water, while a dog looks on.
