Image Index > Courtship Scenes > Youth Prepares To Offer Gift To Another


DESCRIPTION
As on Side A, two age-equal youths with similar hair styles engage in conversation. A slightly more mature status is accorded the youth on the left, in that he possesses a staff. He appears to reach into his cloak with his right hand, as if to produce a gift. The other youth looks down to see what he is about to be offered.
