A drawing on a card with orange and red ink. A grand woman to the left is in a floor-length dress with heavily textured fabric and ornate hanging down the central skirt panel. The figure appears to be holding a rounded bundle. Two other faces to the right, towards the top, wear make-up on eyes and have elaborate hairstyles. Patterning surrounding the figure and faces is quite ordered and neat compared to many drawings in Gill's oeuvre. Chequerboard flooring, staircases and windows give an impression of architectural space, decorated with flower motifs and other repeated patterns.
