The blessing


description below

An austere-looking man with a shaved head and ragged clothes, kneels in prayer before his simple meal, unaware that as he recites his blessing, his cat is drinking from his bowl. On the table is a book on which lay his spectacles; his hat hangs off the back of his chair. On the wall behind them is a picture of the three crosses on Calvary.
