Life-size head of a young woman with distinctly Libyan features. Her oval face has well-modelled cheekbones and a small, slightly aquiline nose. Her hair is arranged in sections that are drawn back from the forehead in the manner of a "melonenfrisur" hairstyle. A large bun composed of three superimposed braids is set on the upper back of the head. Spiral curls mark the edge of the hairline over the temples.
