A young woman or girl (Naasra Yeti) in a white, lace-trimmed dress and pink belt with rosette dominates the center foreground; she gazes directly at the viewer, her right arm folded across her body and her left hand raised to her face. She balances a metal basin or vessel on her head, and stands in front of a desolate landscape strewn with debris.
