Description

This detailed aquatint by Lionel Lindsay shows a classic scene of bush mythology. The scene is framed by two large gum trees and has a vignette effect where the outside of the image is darker than the centre. This pulls focus towards the two bushmen drinking tea over a boiling billy, while their team of draught horses and a dog take a rest. The 'teamsters' are transporting a wagon of hay bales.
