Description

Color print depicting two women in an outdoor setting. A woman is standing in the left side of the print, and looking down toward a woman who is seated on a large, yellow mat. The woman is seated in front of an object upon which there is a scroll of white material, and she is holding a yellow object in her proper right hand. Both of the women are wearing long, loose, pink robes. There are mountains and trees in the background, and there is a branch covered with leaves behind the women.
