Description:

This central image sits on a gold-coloured, florally patterned silk panel. The image shows a female figure in the bottom right standing side on but twisted to the viewer and looking towards an upturned bucket in front of her. She wears cream and grey robes, tied at the waist with a patterned sash, and wears a simple white hat. Her right arm is outstretched towards the bucket, and the left is raised to her chest. Black and red annotations are in the bottom right corner.
