This painting evokes Hendra's precedent-setting painting, "Penjual Ayam", which received good reviews from art critics in the 1950s. A group of women bent with loads of chicken on their backs are moving through heavy rain. A dexterous daughter takes banana leaf tree while holding her siblings with the other hand. The composition captures a moment in the life of the common people as they struggle through hardship, with the color blue forming an ambient atmosphere and mood.
