Working on her seductive appeal, this woman sits in front of the mirror, the face of which is concealed from the viewer, to knot her hair in a chignon at the base of her neck. Various jars in the wooden box, that also holds the mirror, have ointments and concoctions for beauty. She is dressed in a red saree with a green blouse. Strings of beads, bangles and anklets already adorn her body. She has painted her lips and put a red dot in the centre of her forehead. The artist has captured her in the last leg of beautification.
The artist has used bright colours like red and green but in subdued tones. The yellow, red and green has been placed against each other in such a manner that one complements the other. Vertically dividing the canvas, we observe that the artist has used the brown entirely in the left section.
