Fragment of a Small Head-Stela with a U-Shaped Face


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Most of this stela is lost, except for a small part on each side of the face. The edges of the eye sockets are partially damaged; tool marks suggests that someone pried out the precious inlaid eyes. The mouth is executed as a straight line without modeled lips.
