Watercolour painting with a pen and ink border of cotton production. A man sits on the floor ginning cotton to separate the fibres from the seeds. He sits in front of a wooden frame through which he is ginning the cotton. He wears yellow trousers with a white tunic and red turban. Behind him are two baskets of cotton. Standing facing him is a woman wearing yellow trousers, a red tunic and a green shawl that covers her head and shoulders. On her head she balances a large basket of cotton. She points at the seated man with her left hand.
