Description
This well dressed woman raises her hand to her face as if she has just thought of something she forgot. She wears a skirt in an attractive dotted pattern, a chic hat, nice jewels. White pigment(perhaps with some ritual significance) covers her hands and feet like gloves and shoes.She is,in fact,a lady as one might see dinning out in a fashionable cafe,except that she is naked from the waist up. Perhaps that is what she forgot, here in the 20th century where we require such things. - (PF.0726)
