Description

Black-and-white image of a woman who is crouching and drawing on the ground with chalk. The ground is made of square cement blocks, which create crossing, diagonal lines across the image. The woman is drawing the face of a woman in a rectangle, with white chalk text around the rectangle. There are a pair of black gloves on the ground, in the bottom right quadrant of the image, and there are two pairs of feet in the top left corner of the image. The woman has long, dark, straight hair and she is wearing a long-sleeved, black top with dark pants and shoes.
