Oxen
Description
Composition in black and white. Parallel lines and some contour. Group of six zebu cattle in pasture lanscape. In the foreground, from the left to the right: ox standing facing with head tilted down, grazing. The second bull is standing with legs hidden by high grass and head slightly tilted to the left. The third seems to be lying in front with big horns; the room is standing in profile to the left, his head almost in front, with a bird perched on his back and legs hidden by tall grass. At the center of pasture there is a nest with three eggs. In the background, on the right, ox standing facing with head raised and more to the right, another ox, 3/4 facing left with two birds perched on his back. Basically, kind of planting a tree and several birds flying near the horse. The animals and pasture ahead are represented by dashed parallel.
