Six nude men gather in a rustic wood and stone bathhouse, open to the nearby village. One plays a lute, another a flute. A fat man drinks from a tankard. men converse, one holding a flower. In the background is a castle, trees, buildings, a well. Around are plants and a faucet in the shape of a cockerel.
