The mango tree at the right is native to India.
On her way to bring a meal to her husband, a woman encountered a man who offered her money for sex. They embrace and go off to a sheltered place, leaving his son with the food basket. Bored with waiting for them, he fashions a pastry from the woman’s basket into the shape of an elephant.
