U-Shaped Juvenile Face


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The characteristics of this face are the rimmed eyes, the softly modeled ridges above the eyes, and the small mouth. The protruding lips are pressed tightly together and convey a serious expression. There are no indicators of gender, but the softness of the features may indicate youth.
