Mucha's painting "Woman in the Wilderness," also called "Star" and "Siberia." A field of snow and a blue-gray night sky with a single bright star lighting a Russian peasant woman wrapped in a shawl sitting on the ground.

Wrapped in a heavy shawl draped over her head, she turns her face to the sky, where a single star pierces the night-gray sky.
