The face and hair suggest a young woman. The sides of her face are asymmetrical: the right side has a shallower cheekbone and jaw. The hair is rolled back from the forehead and sides of the face in one continuous coil. The hair on the crown and back is dressed in rows radiating away from the center part. Earlobes are visible beneath the roll of hair. The lips are parted and full. The nose is straight with defined nostrils. The chin is rounded. The back of the head is not finished. The head appears to have been broken off from a wall, with the face looking downward at a 45 degree angle.
