Her hair is smoothed with oil and closely twisted, and fastened with bodkins of gold and silver; across her forehead she wears a band, from which descends a peak of velvet, decorated with a diamond or pearl, and artificial flowers, are arranged on each side of her head. She wears earrings and a string of perfumed beads. Her son has two queues of hair, as was the fashion. The servant holds a green parasol over the lady. He wears a ring of brass or tutenag.
