A woman places a garland on a cenotaph, probably marking the grave of a Sufi holy man.
In the center of the image, a surprised Mukhtar, dressed in rags, confronts his wife. A few days prior, he had attempted to kill her in order to steal all of her possessions. Now destitute, Mukhtar begs for his wife’s forgiveness, which she grants.
