About this work
Two different scenes on one negative. On the left half, a young monk is seated on a chair in the centre, while other boys are seated on ground either side. On the right half a senior monk stands in the centre, with boys seated, kneeling, and standing on the ground around him. Four of them look after the monk's paraphernalia: a rush mat, a fan, a casket and a teapot. For further details see Paisarn Piemmettawat, loc. cit.
