"The plate seeks to compress several centuries of development into a single scene. The men in the painting are stamping down the ground and laying mats over slowly drying marsh. A patch previously wrested from the marshes already bears the cult hut whose goddess will be implored to protect man and beast as she receives offerings from the treasured pottery vessels assembled for the purpose".
