This is a print showing two female figures facing each other in identical poses. They wear flowers in their hair and are heavily bejewelled. They seem to be holding up another fabric of cloth and using that as a prop while dancing. The backdrop seems to be that of a stage with curtains and lighting, and in the foreground miniaturised musicians play a variety of instruments.
