About this object

Upper part of a female seated statue. The woman sits on a high throne and wears a veil. Her right hand is crossed in front of her waist and seems to be holding something, the left hand is raised to her shoulder and holding part of her veil. The statue could be part of a funerary monument or could be votive. The back of the statue is very flat, suggesting that it was incorporated in the architecture. The overall condition of the statue is very poor.
