The print portrays a young woman using the red color dripping from a pomegranate as makeup. She appears to be trying to envelop herself in the powerful vitality and striking appearance inherent in the pomegranate's abundance and fertility. The work makes the most of the vivid coloring that is a unique feature of woodcut prints to feature eye-catching contrasts of color.
