Description
Literature

Black-and-white, full-length portrait of a woman in profile view, facing the left side of the image. She is standing in front of a dark background, wearing a long, dark cloth that is draped around her body. She is holding the cloth around her chest with her proper right hand. In her left hand she is holding a large, circular object, behind her lower back. She is wearing a light-colored cloth, tied around her head, and she has dark, jaw-length hair that is visible from underneath the cloth. Her face is tilted upward so that she is facing the top left corner of the image.
