Description
Breasted -- 2. Boston, Museum of Fine Arts, 21.408 (Pl. 2a). This model has two plowmen. One man has both arms on the plow handle. The other, ahead and slightly to the left of him, may be engaged in driving the two oxen. His left arm is bent as though to carry something on the left shoulder. Both men wear unusually long white skirts. No feet are indicated for the men. The surface of the ground is suggested by dark brown splashed with white.
