Ça 200 BC-200 AD

The figure stands in a commanding pose, holding a long scepter in her right hand and a small empty bowl in her left. Her head is elongated and her headdress is composed of a long veil that extends to her shoulder blades. The veil ends in tassels in the front. They reach below the heavy dangling ear ornaments. Her nose is long and very thin. She has pronounced deliberate scarification on her shoulders, possibly indicating the insertion of beads beneath her skin. She appears to be wearing short trousers. The figure is complete, but has suffered some breakage, now glued. Her right foot is missing some toes.
