A village threshing floor. Showing a primitive threshing-sledge drawn by buffaloes, and a peasant separating the chaff from the grain with a winnowing fork. The huts of the village are formed of mud and sun-dried bricks, roofed with palm tree rafters thatched with stalks of Indian corn, palm leaves, and old mats. The dark patches on the mud walls represent cakes of fuel made of dung and straw ; when thoroughly dry they are stored for use.
