Women wearing turbans may not have been a widespread fashion but it did exist and was mainly sported by princesses who seem to have taken to wearing a headdress like a man's turban. The artist has painted her in profile, having an oval face, ample forehead, large brown eyes under sharply arched eyebrows. He adds his imaginary touches, presenting her as a paragon of beauty. The turban is finely patterned and tied; the transparent muslin peshwvaz is so thin that the breasts are displayed clearly under it. As much as her face appear confident, the hand gestures display anxiety. Her long black tresses blend with the dark background, which has tall Asoka trees for vegetation. The fair lady against deep green backdrop reflects strength and dignity characteristic of Nur Jahan.
