Rauchende und trinkende Bauern

More about this artwork
The drawing over the door can be seen as a commentary on the scene depicted. Due to its poor sight during the day, the owl symbolises tomfoolery. The laziness captured here, underlined by the number of unpaid drinks notched up on the stool, will ultimately lead to a life of poverty.
