About this object

Striding wooden figure with traces of white paint on garments and red for flesh, all now faded. Short hair swept back and held by band. Arms held by sides with both hands pierced. Slightly unusual hairstyle may possibly represent a foreign woman and may warrent some study. Hole in the top of the head. Left foot is missing. Poorly preserved with details very hard to now see.
