View description: Front view.
Woman is wearing a high, steep-sided headdress. Hair is parted off-center to the right and rolled in sweeps away from the face, trailing to the back. At the back, hair falls from beneath the sweeps and covers the nape of the neck. Upper and lower eyelids are thick and worked in relief. Nose and upper lip have been broken and eroded. Earlobes show from below the hair. Chin and eyebrow ridges are clearly defined.
