The portrait of her cousin Ady Weber, however, was not as fully elaborated in visual terms as the others. It remained as a simple drawing. Ady is depicted standing up; her nude body is that of a teenager, not a fully developed woman. The work has one peculiar feature: the feet have been separated from the rest of the body. This is certainly a strange circumstance, since Frida could easily have drawn the full body in relation to the size of the paper at her disposal.
