This image shows a group of village men helping a woman in white, identified as Sarah Cyrus, or "Mother Cyrus", onto a hammock attached to a long pole used to transport Cyrus through the jungles. The group is gathered in front of three houses with palm trees and other green trees behind them. The houses have rusted metal roofs. The house on the left has red and white window shutters and the houses in the middle and on the right don't have any shutters. The men are all wearing shirts of various colors and short pants. Most are wearing sandals. Five of the men are wearing hats of varying colors.
