She holds fresh flowers in her hand, and we can see the intricate floral background, inspired by the Medieval decorative technique known as Mille Fleurs (thousand flowers), demonstrating the artists' admiration for pre-Renaissance art. The piece is also inscribed with the following verse, beautifully rendered in Gothic type

I am the handmaid of the earth,

I broider fair her glorious gown,

And deck her on her days of mirth

With many a garland of renown.

And while Earth's little ones are fain

And play about the Mother's hem,

I scatter every gift I gain

From sun and wind to gladden them
