Female attendant, modeled in simplified volumes, the figure affects the usual frontal pose, but in this case, the arms are not held in front of the body. The two holes cut into the sleeves were originally intended for the insertion of detachable hands, which probably held an offering. She wears a typical long sleeve wrap over robe. Detachable head of the Figure fits into a hole at the top of the molded hollow body.
