The women, one of them seated both wear aureole type headdresses and are fully clothed. Both men are standing, each facing one of the women as if attending her. According to their attire, the women appear to be of higher standing than the men. One of the men holds a large jar in his hands. The decor consists of palms, and all the personages seem to be involved in harvesting the dates.
