Reverse

The artist (Antoni Madeyski), designing an idealized image of the Polish community, was inspired by Janina Żółtowska's facial features. For him, she represented perfect beauty. Due of the fact that the appearance of Janina Żółtowska reminded Madeyski of Queen Jadwiga, symbolically, many people erroneously attribute this image to the Polish Queen.

Radiant head of a woman (turned left). From the head come ears of grain around.
