Female Tomb Figure


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This woman is shown nude, but with collar, bracelets and anklets. Women were normally depicted in a restful pose, with feet together and arms hanging down beside the body-not in the more active stance of men, with the left foot forward. The woman has short hair painted black, in rows of rectangles. She wears a painted necklace, braclets, and anklets. Her feet have been repaired, and she has pins under her heels and set into modern base.
