The picture illustrates Song of Solomon 5:2-6. A naked young woman is sitting on a bed in a vaulted room and trying to cover her breasts with her right hand. Her black hair is scattered over her shoulders. She is looking towards the brown arched door, on the right, where a hand is trying to open the door from the outside. In front of the woman there is a jug on a tray. A table with a vase on it is standing at the left corner of the room. Behind the table there is a small window. Above the girl's bed there is a shelf with various pitchers on it. An oil lamp hangs on the ceiling. The picture frame is square and arched at the top. It seems like a stone relief. On the left corner a peacock is spreading its wings; on the right corner a dove is standing on a twig. Between them are floral decorative ornaments. At the sides of the picture are rectangles with "reliefs": a Menorah on the right side and twisted columns on the left. The text is written as well as a relief inscription in block, gray Hebrew letters.
