Gouache painting on mica of wine waiter. The man is shown squatting on the floor whilst holding the two bottles in a basket which is filled with something, possibly water. He wears a long white tunic and a white hat with yellow shoes with up-turned toes. On the floor to his right is a small basket and behind him are two large vessels with straw mats at the base to balance them. Above the vessels is a green curtain which is drawn back as if to reveal the man.
