Description

Black-and-white, full-length portrait of a woman in three-quarters view. Her face is turned toward the right side of the image, and her body is facing the left side. She is standing in front of an oriental rug that is hung on a wall, and there is a shiny, ceramic pot in front of her proper left foot, on the ground. Her arms are swaying toward the right side of the image and she is wearing a long, beaded necklace. She is wearing a black, strapless top, loose black pants, and there is a patterned scarf tied around her waist.
