Head of a woman
Tanasi, Davide; Hassam, Stephan
Head is adorned with a headdress set in the hair. Hair is parted in the middle of the forehead and arranged in rows radiating away from the face. The headdress is a broad circular device extending from above one ear, across the top of the head and over to above the other ear. Behind the headdress, the rows of hair are pulled into a knot at the nape. Details behind the headdress are roughly worked. The facial details are not sharp but include top and bottom eyelids, distinct straight lips and a double chin. Right ear is eroded.
