Vintage Indian Black and White Photo

This oddly composed photograph brings me joy, with a shiver of unease.

The double exposure with a front view and back view is almost medical or documentary in nature.  But how else would we see the lovely cascade of 1001 jasmine flowers that grace the full column of her spine?
