Eleven women posing for a photo dressed elegantly in fine attire with flower arrangements attached upon their left side shoulder. Five women in the front row, one on the left and one on the right are sitting atop the armrest of a couch while three women are sitting down with their hands interlaced gently on their lap. The remaining six women are standing in staggered positions at a slight angle, three on the left with their right shoulder facing outward and three on the right with their left shoulder facing outward. A bookcase can be seen in the upper left-hand corner, as well as window shutters directly behind the third woman standing up from the left hand side. A floral rug dons the floor and one lamp to the left and right of the women with a vine pattern strewn across its entire circumference.
