Black-and-white image of a woman holding a small child. The woman is standing in front of a stone wall, and there is a large, dark cloth wrapped around her shoulders and the child's body. The child is facing the right side of the image and is wearing a light-colored top. Both the woman and the child have dark, straight hair that is pulled back loosely.
