The woman in green is the chaperone of ‘Ubaid’s new wife.
The young ‘Ubaid, wearing green, sits across from his new wife on a blue and gold arabesque carpet. ‘Ubaid is so infatuated with his bride’s beauty that he begins to neglect his regular duties. His worried father consults a talking parrot and myna bird for advice on how to restrain his son’s excessive devotion.
