From the clothing and the facial tattoos of the woman pictured in this painting, as well as the woodcarving in the background, it appears that this is a record of an actual event. The sun’s rays brush across the weaver’s face as she works diligently, and also fall onto her clothing. The reflection of the sunlight creates an almost divine glow.
