Statuette of Female



Miniature portrait of a woman restored onto an ancient statuette. Woman has typically Republican ‘Nodus’ hairstyle, with two strands of hair on her forehead going back into a bun. Of the head, the nose and neck have been restored. Of the body, which is basically ancient, the arms and lower part of legs with plinth have been restored. The miniature scale suggests that it was displayed in a private, domestic context.
