The horse-drawn wagon of a fish-monger is the central image here. The two horses in the wagon traces are engaged with their feed-bags. In the front of the covered wagon sit three men, all mending canvas or working on nets. Standing outside of the wagon beside a stack of fishing crates is a vender or a fisherman. Turtles crawl around the bases of the crates and baskets. Behind the wagon, beyond the upright cluster of bamboo fishing rods, sit two men, conversing with each other. (Monica Jensen 02/09/93)
