Red and orange painting of three figures mounted in a wooden frame painted red with decorated corners and attached to a folding metal stand. The image depicts a man, seated on the right in an enclosed garden setting, gesturing toward a kneeling, beardless youth holding a large basin; behind the youth, a standing woman holds a vine; a rubāʻī is written in the lower section of the painting. On the back, an orange mandorla with two pendants on the vertical axis surrounded by flowers in shades of orange and red.
