The cartoonish figure has her eyes tightly shut. The picture is clearly contemporary, but the huge bonnet she wears is not now commonly worn by Western women and the pearls she wears suggest she is not from a religious order such as the Amish. The only people who still wear bonnets are babies. Hanging by her pearl necklace is also a baby’s dummy held by a gold chain. Her grimace could be seen as the distaste of sucking a dummy, a second childhood or having never properly left the first childhood.
