An African porter, holding a missive, is shown shirtless, leans on his bamboo cane and is shown walking, his back bent under the weight of his load in which the movement is inscribed. Shuttle-shaped base adorned in relief with a monkey swinging on palm branches between fruit baskets held in place by ribbon knots and on each side are parrots.
