The 18th century artist has chosen to copy only the "attendant" who is shown. Jama untied, preparing areca nut for.
Box beside him and a lota just in front. In the background we see his modest home with a makeshift log fence surrounding it. The later work is faithful to the original, though the composition is in reverse. The other work has only been included for comparison.
