Woman with basket on her head in a finerary structure
The fragment belongs to a funerary representation. With her right hand, the woman is holding onto one of the columns supporting a funerary structure. On her head, she carries a shallow basket hung with fillets that she will probably bring to the tomb. The fragment is notable for its fine drawing and polychromy as well as for the basket that so resembles a sombrero.
