About this object

A small round female head from a votive statuette. Most of the facial features apart from the left eye have faded. Her left eye is wide and slightly bulgy. She is wearing an earing on her left well shaped ear. Her hair is cross hatched and this may suggest that it was braided or that she was wearing a fillet. The right side of the head has a black stain.
