Description

carved in soft rounded volume, the serene slender face with eyes downcast above a long, straight nose rising to an elegantly arched carved brow, with full pursed lips in a benign smile above a neatly defined chin, the face flanked by flat pendulous earlobes, the hair centrally parted, the curved hairline below a tall trapezoidal three-sided crown carved to the center with a four-petaled floret.
