Title: Date Palm
Original vintage poster showing the harvest of date trees (scientific name Phoenix Dactylifera). The illustration reveals just how much of a communal experience the harvesting is: men share stories by the pond, woman take the opportunity to collect some water to bring home, and the pluckier young men climb up the palm trees to collect their sweet fruit.
