Description
Head of a girl in the archaising style, imitating Greek Archaic. She has long hair down the back of her neck, rendered by wavy surface incisions. She wears a low, plain diadem, in front of which the hair is a little more modelled with a centre parting and symmetrical waves running horizontally. Her nose and ears are missing. The eyes are hollowed out. The mouth has an Archaic smile. The upper eyelids are parallel with the line of brows.
