The standing figure is wearing a long garment. Her left arm is raised to support the brown ceramic pot on her shoulder, the right arm at her side is holding a red scarf. Her head is wrapped with a light brown turban. The long garment has three large flowers down the front. It is a light brown-yellow, as are the shirt and skirt or pants underneath.
