Standing Female Figure

Her features include very early Tlatilco-style eyes in arching form, a short nose, puffy cheeks, and thick fleshy downturned lips. Her coiffure consists of two long hair lappets flowing over her shoulders. She is crafted in a solid orange terra cotta with a yellow creamy colored slip.
