© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 11.2.1992

The picture represents a woman from the waist up with her mirror image below in a playing card- like manner. The woman has blue eyes and black hair covered with a red scarf surrounded by a black rope. She is wearing a blue dress with embroidery on the chest, and a colourful belt with a golden dagger. Her left hand is resting on her waist. In the upper left corner there is a pencil sketch of a full female figure.
