Statuette of a Woman - 1973.20

Acquisition number: 

Much of the left arm and the instrument held are missing; the surface is worn. Rather rough orange-buff clay with slight mica and small white and red inclusions. The figurine was made in two halves, the front probably moulded despite the fact that the nose was pinched and the hollow between the legs emphasised with the finger. There is a circular vent in the back; the base is hollow. There is evidence of hair on her right shoulder. Blobs of clay at the neck must indicate jewellery. The front of the figure has an orange-buff clay slip. There are traces of red paint for face, hair and feet and to mark the drapery.
