On display

A full length portrait of a woman turned to her right, looking towards the viewer. She is central in the composition and stands beside a smoking cauldron on the left which is decorated with a snake. As an offering the woman holds out a drinking vessel with two handles towards a smokey silhouette of a woman that billows from the caldron. Another female figure who is clutching a jug can be seen crouching on the right.
