This model brewery is densely populated with seven characters, each illustrating an occupation, a man and woman are bent with arms stretching out to their brewing barrel, two men are carrying, the first water - two vessels suspended from a yoke - the other the bundle of wood he needs to feed the beehive oven, two women are focused on the milling base-stone. The activity of single squatting figure is less clear. Between the figures stand two jars of beer and two barrels for fermentation.
