This is a fanciful depiction of Khubilai Khan and Chabi, his second wife (he had four principal wives), preparing a cookout.
In reality, their many retainers and cooks would have prepared the actual
cookouts and elaborate feasts associated with the Mongol empire. But the
image does offer a fairly accurate view of a ger (also called yurt,
in Turkish) the tent that was so indispensable to the Mongols'
pastoral-nomadic way of life.
