Seemingly a still from a dream, this oil painting has a finish bordering on the surreal. The brushstrokes are rough-hewn, like lines from a receding memory. The tone of the composition is captured in the cowdust hour light that pervades the painting. The same is cut through - coldly, in an almost bizarre fashion - by a collection of delicate, pristine compositions at the potter's shop. In fact, it is what dominates the centre of the composition, its peculiarity enhanced by the scantily clad street-entertainer who stands afore the shop and looks on at those works. This painting is of a moment of wonder, of an extent only possible in dream-frame.

Her feet are naked but for the copious proportions of silver round her ankles and toes, a hint of which peers out from underneath her lasciviously draped odhni (note how it reveals rather than conceals her matronly bosom). She's dressed in the locally produced ghagra of the Northwestern desert region, and carries in her hand a tambourine that she thumps on to earn her bread. The rest of the men in the frame pay no attention to her - they are used to her presence, having probably seen as much of her as there is to be seen. The surreal appeal of the painting is complemented by the realistically portrayed earth that dominates a major part of the foreground.
