Description This well-carved figurine represents a nude girl wearing an elaborate wig. The hair is pulled across the forehead. Two twisted locks hang in front of the shoulders and two thick tapering locks, which end in large curls, fall in back. The eyes are heavy lidded. Circular grooves mark the nipples and navel, and there is a ridge under the breasts. There is a groove down the back and under the buttocks. The knees are particularly well modeled. Unfortunately, the surface is flaking. The authenticity of this object has been questioned.
