The protagonist of this painting is important, but what is also important is insignificantly painted in the background the fort with a victory flag waving in the breeze. It connects us to this aggressively beautiful woman on horseback, richly dressed, accompanied by hunting dogs. Her attire is so painted, giving it a tactile gloss. Similar technique is applied to lend sheen to her golden hair. A small crown resting on her delicate head defines her status. While sitting astride the horse, she effortlessly hold its reigns in one hand and a bird of prey in the other.
The well bred stallion, with its majestic mane, matches adequately with its rider. The animal is well ornamented and boasts of a rich silk saddle. The canines, wearing gold collars, surround their mistress, waiting for further instructions.
The background is an amalgamation of various colours, depicting nothing in particular, yet leaving a turbulent flavor in its blending.
