A celebration of coffee social horrors, this depiction of unappetizing libation customs is sure to delight all those who have a taste for the exotic. Macrocosmic drama around the table is dwarfed by the microcosmic chaos seen in the interplay of a weapon-wielding pig, a nut-clutching squirrel, and the intrigue of snakes, eggs, and escargot. A pleasant feast for the eyes, this painting befits a kitchen or dining area in the modern home.
