Man with Aioli - Homme à l'aoili - Size #2 / Elite

Man with Aioli (Garlic Mayonnaise) –- Homme à l’'aioli - Ome eme l'aioli

This charming old man sits on a small stone bench preparing the garlicky mayonnaise, aioli, his bottle of oil there beside him. He crushes the garlic in his traditional white marble mortar and pestle, the sides of which always remain oily despite thorough cleaning. 

As explained in Wikipedia: "In Provence, aioli (or more formally, Le Grand Aïoli) is more than simply the garlic mayonnaise, it also designates a complete dish consisting of various boiled vegetables (uniformly carrotspotatoes, and green beans), boiled fish (normally desalted salt cod), and boiled eggs usually served along with snails or mollusks, with the aioli sauce. Other commonly used vegetables are cauliflower, courgettes (zucchini) and raw tomato."
