Finger wrestling (Fingerhakeln), viewed as a serious sport in Bavaria and throughout the Alpine region, pits two contestants against each other across a substantial table. The objective of the contest is for one to pull the other across the table using only a single finger. In this playful depiction from a painting by Franz Defregger (1835-1921), a man takes on two women simultaneously.
