sharp-featured, royally adorned lady is the subject of this stunning oil on canvas. The lady sits on a deep red rug, relaxedly placing her leg on bolsters,
and holds the pipe of a Hukkah. The muted shade of her chunni (scarf) frames
her face perfectly and the jeweled ornaments that shine on her body, are
highlighted against the dark backdrop. Her poised pose and regal aura remind us
of the ladies of Haram (female inner quarters) in medieval times, where women
like her held the reigns of internal administration of the royal family.
