A King with musicians

A royal couple sits on the left on a gold-coloured stool on a white terrace; the man holds the hookah, the woman behind him a tampura, left behind the taburet three maidservants; right in front of the taburette a dancing woman with behind her a group of women, some of whom are holding a musical instrument; behind the terrace bushes and cypresses. The depiction is set in framing lines of black, red and white, a gold trim around the inner edge, the outer edge of the leaf is in sky blue with gold leaf vines, the vertical edges are as wide as horizontal ones, around the painted edge even more frame lines in white, red and black, also filled in with a gold trim in the middle.
