An old woman crying for reasons unknown to the viewer. The imagery of her hand, with its creased tissue skin, covering her face just seemed to take her grief to a new level. It is written in the lines and folds of her hands that her life has not been easy. Does the drawing need more context for the viewer to determine what the image is? Probably, but to me her shroud and clothing just seemed to be extraneous information.
