Description

Interior. A nude woman (identified as actress and documentary maker Rita Gam) stands with fabric draped in front of her, hands together as if in prayer under her chin, a pearl headband on her head. To either side of her are tall candle sticks holding lit pillar candles, and in front of her are six more, shorter lit pillar candlesticks.
