figurines

Fragment of a terracotta figure solid and mould-made the back is unmodelled. The subject is female and wears a veil or has modelled hair her fringe is shown as stylised blobs. The features are worn but the eyebrows are modelled; the eyes are large and bulbous; the face is oval and well-proportioned. Possibly an archaising figure of a deity. Nile silt clay.
