A society of young men, who volunteer to be slaves for two years, and elect their chief or master; they are then exempt from slavish duties during the remainder of their lives, and are allowed to go on war-parties." Originally sketched in 1835 and painted in the period 1835-1837 (Truettner, 1979, p. 272).
