She is holding a round bowl in her left hand at her waist. The woman on the far right is holding a round bowl in her left hand and is in profile facing left. There is a cylindrical cage between the women and they are both wearing dresses and hats. They have long curly hair. There are birds on the left side of the image in the foreground.
