Ducks fly in the clear blue sky. In the foreground a father and his children pass a thicket of papyrus plants, which grow on the banks of the River Nile. Although young children often went unclothed and barefooted because of the hot weather, even the poorest ones wore jewelry in the forms of necklaces, bracelets, and hair ornaments. One girl plays with a pet baboon while her sister carries a ball in her hand.
