Man carries basket filled with rice seedlings

A Balinese farmer carries a basket filled with rice seedlings supported from below with his right hand. He is wearing blue shorts, a white knit shirt and a plaited straw hat pulled low to shield his eyes from the sun. A white dog stands near behind the farmer at the edge of the wet field. Like most dogs in Bali, this one is medium-sized and short-haired with upward pointing triangular ears and a curled tail.The rooted seedlings piled high in the farmer's basket are being moved in clumps of soil for transplant into the newly flooded field that the farmer has just prepared by hoeing and leveling.
