Women vendors are a staple in Malang’s works, such as what is portrayed in this work. Using the medium of charcoal, Malang rendered the figure by employing a variety of shades, from the dark of the table and her hair to the suggestion of the diaphanous quality of her nipis blouse. Its play on textures delivers a singular quality to the work.
