The image of the girl in the painting seems realistic, but it’s not necessarily derived from any real model or form. It’s simply a symbol representing the common beauty of an Oriental woman sitting in a light-suffused environment, submerged in the twilight of the sub-consciousness, unable to distinguish between real and oneiric states of mind while contemplating a multiple aspects of life, with a wistful desire to achieve peace and tranquility.
