The body is very flat, the wide bare feet are placed on a slanting plinth. The himation flares at the bottom. The very summary lowered left arm is shown with the hand grasping a round object. The right hand is placed on the chest. The long face has a serious expression. The nose is wide, the eyes bulging. The back is flat at the top, simply roughed out at the bottom, and there are many tool marks.
