Diorama of the Zeezigt coffee and cotton plantation Diorama of the Zeezigt Coffee and Cotton Plantation, Diorama of plantation Zeezigt in Suriname, a wooden case with straight sides and a crescent-shaped back and top. The outside is partly covered with paper and a black frame has been applied (later) to the front. The cabinet is painted on the inside with a cloudy sky. A plastic representation of a plantation has been made in the cupboard. Given the water management of the company it could be a sugar plantation, but a boiler house is not visible. The plantation is on the river, where there are also some buildings with slaves and whites. From left to right: in the background a meadow with cows and a lock. A man is walking at the lock. In the foreground there is an opening in the 'river' where a boat was attached. In the background a path that is lined with hedges and leads to the different plantation buildings.

Along the path a building with a porch and a three-storey house. To the right of it is a small building with fencing in front. Even farther to the right is the planters' house, constructed from white-painted wood on a brick substructure. The house has three floors and a large extension to the river. A white man stands in the doorway and there are seven slaves in front of the house. In the river in front of the big house is a tent boat with an open-worked stern. The shutters of the tent section are closed. There is a slave on the shore. Further to the right in the background is a building with doors and royal palms in front. There are nine red-brown buildings in the background, probably slave barracks. A white rider comes on horseback from the fields in front of him. A slave walks a bit behind him. The attitude of the slave seems to indicate that he was originally tied with a rope to t
