She wears a tiara or a wreath, on the left side of which there are traces of red colour. There is a thick row of hair locks on the forehead. The female also wears earings on both her ears and a necklace. Parts of the limestone on the jaw and the face have fallen. There are traces of red colour at the back of the head.
