There is a striking resemblance between the features of these two young men. They are probably brothers. The oldest (at right) is possibly a soldier or a member of a militia company. The gesture he makes with his fingers is curious. It may represent a measure, in which case he is advocating temperance. The jutting out of the young men’s elbows carved in high relief is artistically daring.
