"Mirror, mirror on the wall… Who’s the prettiest of them all?"
Might as well be asking a young lady depicted on this miniature. What stands out in this work is play with color: in particular the magnificent color cascade of the shawl coming down from the lady's shoulder. The cool blue shades in the shawl and the green hat balance nicely the predominance of warm pink and brown tones in the composition. A nuanced and realistic style of this work is seen most vividly through careful portrayal of the young lady's face.

The composition is adorned with a delicate gold ornament, and a larger flower ornament decorates the sides of the box. The bottom of the composition is signed with the artist's name and village. The box is made from high quality papier mache. It sits flat with no legs and has a hinge on the left. The interior is red. The outside of the box is painted in lilac instead of traditional black. The box and lacquer are in excellent condition.
