Label Text:
On this figurine, a light shawl or scarf replaces the usual heavy cloak, and its flowing ends suggest the woman’s slight movement or a breeze. Her loose, curly hair and sleeveless, V-necked shift also convey a carefree mood. The conical hat provides some protection from the sun, but may also indicate the young woman’s divinity.
