Description:
AD))): A dark-skinned woman in a pink checkered dress stands at the center, a straw hat covering her chin-length hair, and green bangles on each wrist. Her right hand is raised into a wave while her left hand is holding up a basket of bright red fruit to her waist. Behind the woman, we see greenery in the background, as well as a grey building with a red chimney in the distance and, closer to the woman, a red structure behind a grey fence. A white bird sits on a patch of greenery facing the woman. In front of her, various plants--including flowers and grasses in various shades of red and green, respectively--line the ground.
