Greece, Hellenistic Period, ca. 3rd to 1st century BCE. A hollow-cast ceramic figure depicting a standing female dressed in a flowing himation. She stands atop an integral rectangular base with her right leg extended slightly forward, her arms bent and holding up the trail of her gown. Her head is tilted and faces slightly towards her right side, with circular eyes, a triangular nose, full lips, and rounded cheeks defining her feminine visage beneath a neatly-arranged coiffure. The majority of the figure is presented in a deep chocolate brown, though areas of the obverse side are somewhat deeper in hue due to fire-darkening. A fabulous example from ancient Greece! Size: 2.5" W x 6.375" H (6.4 cm x 16.2 cm).

Provenance: private Healy collection, Studio City, California, USA, acquired over the last twenty years
