Description A slender girl is represented nude except for a bead necklace, arm rings, and an elaborate wig that ends in curls at the shoulders. Holes on the front, back, and top of the curls, across the top of the head, and down the back of the head were probably used for inlay or for the attachment of hair. The fingernails are indicated on the well-shaped hands. The back of the figure is flat. As is often the case with figures, the lower legs are intentionally cut off.
