The artwork by Ibragim Valikhodjaev depicts two figures, likely women, engaged in what appears to be a traditional market scene. The figures are dressed in long, flowing garments with head coverings, and they are seated or kneeling in front of a display of items that resemble intricately patterned textiles or skullcaps (traditional headwear). The background features an arch-like structure, which adds a sense of depth and context to the scene.

The color palette is composed of muted, earthy tones with splashes of brighter colors in the patterns of the textiles. The figure on the left is dressed in a dark garment with a floral pattern, while the figure on the right wears a lighter, yellowish garment with a dotted pattern. Both figures hold items in their hands, possibly indicating their involvement in selling or displaying the goods.

The overall composition is balanced and harmonious, with a focus on the cultural and traditional aspects of the scene. The use of simplified forms and patterns gives the artwork a stylized and somewhat abstract quality, emphasizing the cultural significance and the artisanal nature of the depicted items.
