A painting of an elderly woman, a fisherman's mother, wearing a purple headscarf and leaning both hands on a walking stick.
A photograph on paper. The head of a young girl is clearly visible, as though reflected in a square of mirror - on one side of her head her hair is pinned up in a ponytail, on the other side it is loose to her shoulders. One of her eyes has black markings under it. She is surrounded by abstract patterns - we can see her shirt faintly, as though reflected through a window. Out of focus beneath her face we see three brass fittings, like the fixtures of a bath.
