Description:Indoor shot of nine men, most with moustaches, in formal suits and sitting around a long rectangular table in the corner of a room, looking into the camera. The table is covered with a white cloth – on top are several small glasses with toothpicks, writing utensils and a hat. The wall is covered with floral wallpaper and features a large sign with the words 'Beogradsko savezno lovačko udruženje' (United Belgrade Hunters’ Association) and an emblem. Beneath the sign, a coatrack holds two more hats and a coat. To its left, a mirror reveals the reflection of a stuffed wild boar's head, deer antlers and other objects hanging on the wall.
Comment:The Belgrade Hunters’ Association was founded in 1895, first as a club, and a few years later as a formal association.
