Slightly under life-size, and preserved down to the shoulders. It is sensitively carved, rendering lightly chubby and soft shapes--distinctive of a child's head. The contour of the face is in the round, with almond shaped eyes, and incised irises. The hair covers the head and is furrowed with wavy lines. Mounted on a custom base display stand.
