Black-and-white illustration of five men preparing a skirt steak at the side of a fire indoors. They are shown wearing the wide pants, large belts, bolos and carrying Matte pipes considered typical of the pampas (prairies) of Argentina. They are within a large tent-like hall made of wood, skins and blankets. These men are gauchos, the equivalent of cowboys in the United States.
