What is most remarkable about this portrait is the graceful pose, the subdued colours and pensive face that speaks volumes, and an overall mood of restrained dignity. Resting against a huge bolster, she holds the end of the huqqa, though not smoking it. One of her hands rest on the raised knee. Her face is simple and sensitive; her gaze travelling beyond space, maybe, introspecting. She wears a smile on her face but it fails to reach her eyes which look troubled and pensive. Her jewellery is painted in a manner that shows it's heavy in weight; skilfully crafted head ornaments, down to the tiniest toe rings - all are paid attention to.
The elegance of the portrait is not overshadowed by the background, which shows a door that is ajar. The wall is shaded for better effect. This painting tells that colour is not the most important element of painting.
