This smiling female figure has her hair tied up to one side, wound around with an embroidered strip of cloth. She stands akimbo with her upper garment removed and tied in a loose looped knot at her side. A broad girdle holds up her clinging, diaphanous skirt. She has the ideal female form of a young mother, and since she holds a spear, she may have served a protective function.
