Tan Thean Song works mainly in the batik medium, although he also paints in watercolours and Chinese ink. This 1961 work has a muted backdrop with the typical cracking-line technique. It shows a group of ladies clad in sarongs, carrying their purses in what seems to be a market. The setting illustrated is a market, surrounded by shophouses.
