Veiled and diademed head of a female statuette. The hair is parted in the middle and brushed back from the temples in puffy rolls that frame the face and partly cover the ears. A low diadem of even width is set on the crown of the head just behind the front roll of hair. A veil covers the back of the head; its edges are thick and raised above the surface of the hair.
