Title:
Two Men in Different Clothing with Carved Tobacco Pipes (recto); Sir Marmaduke's Cage (verso)
Abstract:
These two men are depicted wearing different style parkas and boots. These might be men from different villages who are speaking with one another during the feast. Each man holds a tobacco pipe in front of the center of his chest, wrapping the bowl with his fingers. The pipes do not appear to be elaborately carved or decorated, but their presence is central to this scene, conveying the significance of an encounter between the two men.
