Black-and-white image of a seated woman in three-quarters view, turned toward the right side of the image. She is seated in front of a stone wall and there is a woven basket on her lap. She is wearing a long, dark robe that covers her head and the top part of her body, and her legs are covered by a long, light-colored skirt.
