Tew Nai Tong’s significant “squinty eyes” expressions on his subjects in all his artworks depict the contentment and happiness that come from having a good family relationship and peaceful and harmonious environment. With that in mind, this piece brings about a mood that is serene, joyous and all about contentment. A group of corn farmers are seen about their antics harvesting fresh corn, as illustrated by their bags of their reap and a pile of corn strewn on the ground. Tew Nai Tong’s ‘squinty eyes’ are evident here, especially on the lady on the foreground who seems to emanate contentment with her life.
