This beautiful picture illustrates a mother and son, with cherub-like features and pouty lips that are characteristic of many of Naidu's depictions. They are elegantly adorned with opulent diamonds, pearls, rubies and emeralds that are painted with careful and precise brushstrokes. These jewels shine and sparkle and seem to leap off the canvas, highlighted by the chiaro-scuro effect of their fair skin tone and black background. It is apparent that the subjects are from a wealthy or royal household and Naidu was commissioned to paint this portrait. This painting gives the viewer insight into Naidu's mastery of realism and the social history around the time it was created.
