A woman in draped gold and blue clothing sits with a child draped across her legs. She turns and leans down to look at the child, her right hand lifting up her translucent veil slightly to keep it out of the child’s face. Her other hand gently cradles one of the childs feet. The child seems to be sleeping, with one arm draped over their chest and the other arm by their side, holding a peach.
