In this painting, Mathle portrays a women walking from the local well back to her home to prepare dinner for her family. The bucket atop her head is a gourd, carefully carved into a bowl and commonly used as water carriers because of their impenetrable exterior. In Ghana, a women's stomach is considered to be her most seductive body part, and thus the woman pictured here is painted with her beauty and allure in mind.
