Description:Full length shot of a young woman wearing traditional attire and a belt with metal buckles. She is adorned with one necklace with coins and another one with a medallion, earrings, bracelets, and a ring. She is standing next to a parapet in front of a painted canvas backdrop, which creates the illusion of the scene being set in nature. She is holding a small rose and a bowl of grapes.
