What is instantly noticeable about this miniature is the sharp, angular outlining and the unusual physiognomy of the figure - the face is stereotyped and oddly expressive in its very impassiveness. The woman shown its attractive, wearing a long dress. She is holding a wine casket in the crook of her arm. Her left hand is positioned close to her head, indicating that she is looking in the distance, waiting for someone. Strings of pearls adorn her neck and wrists. Her footwear shows black buckled shoes with high heels. All in all: an attractive woman placed in a scenic setting.
If the modelling of the woman shows European influence, the curling clouds in the background show Chinese influence. The shrubs and the trees are Indian, but the treatment is Persian. The amalgamation of extensive styles, juxtaposed so well forms the highpoint of this miniature. What is a little jarring is the fact that the background is foreshortened and the colour palette is subdued to the extent of the painting being monochromatic.
