A winter scene set in a village, featuring two ice skaters on a pond (one having just fallen down), watched by a woman carrying a bundle of branches on her head and a gentleman with a cane, while the woman's companion turns away to tie up another bundle of branches. In the background, two children use sticks to propel themselves on sleds, while a man and woman ride in a festively decorated horse-drawn sleigh.
