The fabric canvas is made from tussar silk, a kind of pure homegrown silk known for its matte shimmer and sturdiness. Dyed a milk white colour, the subject has been executed thereon with the superb precision of the brush. A perfectly symmetrical shape - a wide canopy tapers sharply upwards along a slender, solid green stem, making for an elongated, curvaceous silhouette in the likeness of a single one of its leaves. In addition to its gorgeous shape, the luxuriant canopy is filled in with superb detail, which is best appreciated by zooming in on the same. The thin, soft, winding tendrils in green; the quivering leaves of pale gray stemming from them; and the tender fruits in crimson and scarlet.
While the colour palette comprises basic green, gray, and red in a couple of shades (the same colours are to be found in the motifs along the edges), the predominant colour of this composition is an all-pervading white.
