This picture is not made with the artist's preferred materials, but relies on oils and papier mache and actual pieces of jewellery which Mr. Abbas found on the street, which probably belonged to children as the pieces are very small and faux bijoux. These are on the forehead and in the ear of the woman.
Her face is two-dimensional, made from paper, and as you can see, the white and pink makeup on the face are not the same skin tone as that of her shoulder which is not quite concealed by her dupatta or shawl..
In both Pakistan and India it is desirable to have fair skin and women use creams and lotions to make their skin fair.
Often women and perhaps men are coerced, rather than forced into an arranged marriage, and the sadness on this bride's face seems to suggest that this is her plight.
The artist usually does not feature people in his pictures, and this is a rare example. Only the signature frame with crushed stones in the corner shows that this is the work of Mr. Athar Abbas.
