Description

exquisitely modeled, the elegant lady sitting demurely on a waisted rattan stool, wearing a long, pleated bright green-glazed skirt, tied above the waist and falling to the base, stopping short to reveal green 'triple-cloud' slippers with amber-glazed soles, the left hand lightly resting on one knee and holding the end of a long cream-glazed shawl tucked into the high-waisted sash and draped over the left shoulder, the right hand holding a long stemmed flower, the stylized bloom resting on one shoulder, a simple beaded necklace tied at the back of the neck, the gently rounded face with delicate features, the hair bound up in an elaborate winged coiffure set to either side with a floral ornament, all supported on a square green and ochre-glazed plinth
