A sketch of a man kneeling over an unknown object. The drawing is simple; there is a horizon line about two-thirds up from the bottom of the paper with a figure of a man kneeling, his back towards the viewer, over an unidentified object. The man is wearing simple clothes and a hat, perhaps the clothes of a peasant or farmer, in which case the object could in fact be a piece of farming equipment.
