This image shows a young boy seated on the corner of a bench wearing dark blue shorts. A white and blue bowl is on the floor at his feet and a large pile of palm nuts are on the floor beside the bowl. A white wicker chair is to the right behind the boy and a wooden ladder back chair is to the left of the boy. The photographer noted that palm nuts are used to make wine, butter, and cooking oil.
