Under black hair, which made to tower high on her head, he saw a very fair, very delicate, very smart face, a brightly red mouth, like a freshly cracked fig, eyebrows which were well tended and painted in a high arch, smart and watchful dark eyes, a clear, tall neck rising from a green and golden garment, resting fair hands, long and thin, with wide golden bracelets over the wrists.

Extract from Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha, also set in the time of the Buddha. 

The still is of Simi as the courtesan Kamala in the film adaptation of the novel.
