A black and white photographic portrait of a young woman holding two thread wrapped wooden sticks up to her mouth. The portrait is a close up of the woman who has her chin tilted downwards, but looks slightly up and directly at the camera. She wears a printed scarf and multiple pieces of jewelry, including a dew drop gem against her forehead and suspended hoop earrings with beaded fringe. She holds the wooden sticks in her right hand, which has rings on several fingers. She wears multiple bracelets with suspended pearls on her right wrist and upper arm. Her left hand, which holds the tapered end of the sticks against her mouth, is bare. The back of the photograph has an inscription with the title and date, the photographer's signature, and the photographer's stamp.
