In a sundrenched landscape two women and a small boy walk down a sandy path on a hill, overlooking a lake, a forest on the other side. One of the women pauses and appears to ask a mule driver for directions. The sun stands low and the figures cast long shadows across the path. An enormous cloudscape hovers in the azure skies. High up in the sky is a swarm of birds.
