Grape harvest and wine making


[On the right: harvesting grapes by two men under a vine-grove. The man on the left looks the elder of the two, while the other has the curly hair typical of the inhabitants of the Upper Egypt. 
On the left, the grapes are placed in a white stone press where they are pressed by barefooted men. They support themselves by the ropes hanging from the above crossbar.  Another man stands outside the press, besides a stone tank which receives the grape juice. The juice will be placed in the large jars depicted above him. ]
