Painted by an artist who got both of his arms amputated due to the electrocution, the piece was created based on the bittersweet memory in his old days when his job was to tend and herd the ducks. The ducks were all over the place and his arms did not make it easier for him at all. It was hard and the income was so low but he was happy because at least he earned money.
