Short Description The painting depicts a typical scene of rural life in Bangladesh, showing three daughters fetching water from a pond. Instead of describing them as three women, the painter prefers to call them three daughters. From the painter's lively depiction they seem to be unmarried. Bringing water from nearby ponds is a daily activity of rural women, especially married ones.
