David, a part-Hawaiian man in white shorts, is in motion pounding kalo or taro into poi. He is sitting on a round stone with each of his legs to the right and left of the one-man poi pounding board with a normal or medium knobbed pounder in his hands. In the background to his right is what could be a bowl or bucket of water and a kalo plant with the leaves and the corm. There are boxes or low benches in the background, some with what look like sticks lined up on them. 11.5 x 7 cm (4.5 x 2.75 inches) horizontal
