Opaque watercolour painting on European paper of a toddy tapper and his wife. The man wears a turban and short lower garment, and holds with his left hand a Palmyra palm stem from which hang two clay pots, filled with palm juice, on his right shoulder. In his right hand he carries a knife. From his belt, a palm-leaf container hangs and an unidentified object protrudes. His wife carries a large heavy pot on her head.
