The standing peasant girl has her body turned to the left and her face full to the viewer. Her arms are crossed with her left arm fidgeting with her large beaded necklace and her right arm holding the left elbow. Her dress is composed of reds and creams with an intricately designed ornamental sash around her middle and upon her apron. She stands within the confines of a little path or porch overlooking a small town below depicted by small white boxes on the horizon line. Oleander, one of the most frequently depicted garden plants, is seen around the half walls of her porch. According to invoices in the Hay House files, Mrs. Hay purchased this piece from Fanny Revson Antiques in Atlanta.
