An exterior scene at a country fair, with five children standing beside a stall. The two boys in the centre play a small drum, hanging from one of their necks, as a girl sits on a basket to the left, playing a small clarinet shaped instrument. To the right, a girl holds a rifle over her shoulder, most likely used at the shooting gallery at the fair to win prizes.
De Vesme. 1274: I of III.
