Description

A woman is standing assertively with her right foot and right arm forward. Her right hand is clenched into a fist, palm-side down. Her left hand is clenching a roll of a paper to her chest. She is wearing two layers of tunics and a cape. She is looking upward, a stern expression on her face.
