(Unknown place): A female trying to get knowledge and polishing peoples’ shoes to get a handsome amount to satisfy the needs of basic amenities. In a wider perspective, the image depicts the situations of poverty and knowledge-seeking efforts of an ordinary citizen. The “illusion” is that this is just a picture of road-side phenomenon; but it is not.
