The woman is shown naked and seated with her body turned a little to one side. This is evident from the placing of the right leg stretching to the right and the head turned in that direction. The left arm is bent and the elbow is supported of an armrest. This arm is wrapped in a cloak which hangs down from the shoulder. The missing right arm would seem to have been stretching out from the body. The woman is looking forward and a little to the right. The locks of her hair are swept to the back of her head and held there in a bun.
