Abstract

Reconstructed, and restored, with plaster filling in missing parts on the left arm, left hand, left leg, and right heel; feet broken off beyond the heel. The surface is somewhat chipped and scratched, especially on the face (nose and right eye). Richter (118) notes that the statue was sawn for export in modern times, at the waist, knees, ankles, wrists, and above the left elbow, although the fracture of the right foot is ancient. There are traces of red color on the hair, taenia, iris, and public hair.
