*A large round mirror on the floor is reflecting a kneeling young woman with dark brown hair in a bob, Liliya, but the image in the mirror is differently clothed from Lilliya who is sitting in front of the mirror in a red dress. The room behind her is in various of shades of blue in a soft light. She sits in front of a diaphanous curtain with a breeze billowing gently. There are cords, also in red, attaching her to an identical set of unseen hands in the window behind the curtain. In the right-hand corner is a clock set at 1:20 in an art deco-like, close-to-the-ground, circular stand that is the identical shape as the mirror.
