They are dressed in their traditional attires and jewellery. Lots of colours and natural motifs on their fitted cholies that they've probably worn with ghagras of similar make, and brightly coloured dupattas that are either hand-me-downs from or made by their mother. They are wearing lots of silver jewellery, chunky and studded with semi-precious stones. They have no makeup on except the thick soot that lines their smouldering eyes beneath beauteous, unkempt brows. Having lived their lives out in the arid Northwest, their complexions have taken on an inimitable desert-like quality. The dark background, probably one of the mud walls of their temporary dwelling, adds to the solemnity of the composition.
