of complete lithograph
According to the Narrative "...the men were the drones of the hive, and the women the workers." These three "drones" were observed sitting in the shade passing the time smoking their pipes, sipping tea and "gossipping." According to the Narrative, once they had their fill of smoking and drinking tea they broke out the Saki and it was passed around, "...sometimes beyond the limits of prudence and discretion." Meanwhile, "... the poor women, ... might be seen, half naked, delving with the hoe or spade, in the adjacent gardens under the scorching sun." Quite a picture.
