Lady Bomanji wears an elegant costume that was very obviously meant to simulate a saree to represent her Indian homeland. The formal portrait by Bassano was made in England in June, 1922. Her husband, Dunjibhoy Bomanji, was given an honourary knighthood by King George V that year. The couple, noted philanthropists, lived in Britain for many years. Shown seated below are Bomanji, Princess Alice, Earl Haig (his Countess above in the striped coat), and Lady Bomanji in what may be a proper saree over a fashionable blouse.
