Description

This oil painting by Clement Haupers features five figures lounging on a grassy hill by the sea. In the center of the work, three of the five figures are seated while the other two stand off to the right and left. They wear a long white robe and have their heads covered. The central figure wears a red hat (possibly a tarboosh). Five goats accompany the group. Underneath a clouded blue sky, a mountain range fills the background, separated from the figures by a body of still blue water.
