Statuette of a female wearing an Egyptian-style headdress. The woman body is posed frontally but her head turns dramatically to the left. Both arms are stretched out in the same plane as the torso and both hands probably held attributes, now lost. She wears a sleeveless garment that reaches her calf. From the side the garment appears like a chiton but at the front and back the bodice has textured wavy lines, like ripples of a sheer fabric. The upper torso is drapped with diagonal folds, a vertical swag hangs from the left shoulder in a strong zig zag pattern. The skirt below has vertical folds which project dramatically forward and down. She wears a headress with a peak at the back of the crown and the hair falls in a ponytail onto the back. There are two rows of corkscrew curls at the back and sides.
The statue is of a peculiar iconographical type and there are only a few parallels. It was sold to Blundell as a Bacchante and then it was reinterpreted as Venus Victrix looking at a small Nice in her left hand.
The statue was formerly in the collection displayed at the Villa Mattei in Rome.
