The princess is dressed in an ivory silk dhoti and breastband, woven in with gold booties studded with rubies and emeralds. Her ample hair is coiled in a tall pile on the top of her head, and held in place by a number of pure gold pins and ornaments. On the other hand, her humble lady-in-waiting is dressed according to her station - simple white choli with a solid pink lehenga, and unassuming gold ornaments on her relatively duskier skin. The thick plait of her long hair grazes her thigh.
The lady-in-waiting looks deep into the eyes of her mistress, trying to understand the full import of the goings-on over her heart. The princess looks into the distance, trying her best to capture every detail from that tumultuous memory. Note how her delicate hand is raised mid-air, as if caught in some minor detail of the exchange.
