Performance with seated men and performance with horsemen, an elephant and falcons

The performance is divided into two horizontal strips, separated by a wide orange band. Upstairs are four men, one of whom is dark-skinned, sitting cross-legged. They eat of the food offered to them prepared by a man on the left in two large pots and presented by a standing man; in a tower on the left is a woman with a drum and three women’s heads are visible at the top. The lower strip is higher and depicts a stage with men who have come from the falconry or have yet to go and three men under a tent cloth, servants on the right hold the falcons on their gloved hands and in the open door of a pink building stands a white-robed man.
