I love the little details in this one. I looks like the lute player is tuning to a note the bowed player is giving him. And the careful detail: the lute player has ditched one of his clog-shoes. Will he cross-leg himself in some way to position his instrument, or did some toe-tapping hoedown just get to wild?
I noticed the ditched shoe as well…
