This woman's hair is pulled back from her forehead in tight rolls. A fine braid covers the part and joins a large round bun that sits below the crown of her head. Her inlaid eyes are heightened with deep-blue glass rims. Traces indicate her flesh was originally peach-colored. She wears drop earrings.
