This bronze sculpture depicts a female figure kneeling, bending forward with her arms outstretched. She grasps a long piece of cloth that is stretched on the ground in front of her, as she looks directly at the cloth with intent. The woman is wearing a long skirt, which covers her legs and feet and swirls around her on the ground. Her blouse has flowing sleeves that end at the elbows, leaving her forearms bare. Her hair is pulled back and gathered into a knot. The bronze has a dark green patina and the surface of the statue is smooth and polished.
