Country scene in the Puy-de-Dôme district with the volcanoes on the skyline. A realistic representation like a snapshot.
In the middle two oxen are hitched up to a hay-full cart which a farmer holding a stick is leading.
On the left, countrymen back from the fields carry their scythe, hoe and rake over their shoulders. The whole family has taken part in the haymaking. On the right an elderly woman comes and meets them. At her feet, two frightened geese are quacking. One of the oxen wears a bell that is ringing and annoying the dog which barks at it.
