About This Image
A veiled woman sits on a straw mat surrounded by her three children. The two boys sleep (a amphora between them) while the older daughter stares off in the distance. The figures are swathed in fabrics, the children lean against the mother who is centrally placed. It is a pleasing pyramidal composition, as used in painting. A crease across lower border and small tear midway in it are easily repaired.
