Small, solid-cast figurine of a standing female with fringed drapery over one shoulder, and a body-necklace crossed over the chest, rendered in incision. Thin hair radiates over crown of head, is long over the neck; long, pointed shoes with up-turned toes; right arm extended forward from the elbow with palm out, and fingers curved back as if in a dance-pose; simply modeled face with large almond eyes, traces of small round ears in front of her wavy hair; formfitting dress and grooved neckline, elbow-length sleeves; the left hand seems to hold the skirt out just below the waist
