Puzzle: A puzzle to savor: not completely trivial but quite enjoyable. The easy places to start are the letters at the bottom, the blue behind the figure, the face and hands, the hair and dress embellishments. From there on, the distinct ornaments – black veined one, the bottom left one, and the large circle with small flowers behind the figure are logical places. The dress and the red background on top are more obvious after that, followed by the rest of the background somewhat simplified by existence of the gradient. Not a quick puzzle to do, and good lighting is an asset.

Notes: Chemin de fer is the French term for railway [Wiki].
