Jyapu Couple

A middle-aged Jyapu couple sits in their room. Most Jyapu families make rice beer at home. In the picture, a slightly tipsy husband is cajoling his wife to take a sip from his bowl. She has just finished filling his bowl from the clay pot and has started her spinning. The wife seems a bit shy. In the background are items typical to that period: a wooden trunk, the clay pot with the alcohol, and an oil lamp in an alcove.
