  • Statuette of a standing woman, late 4th–early 3rd century b.c.
    Greek, probably Boeotian
    Terracotta; H. 6 7/16 in. (16.4 cm)
    Rogers Fund, 1909 (09.221.28)

    This standing female figure is dressed in a chiton and himation, which covers her arms, torso, and thighs. Following the tradition for Tanagra figurines, the drapery folds are crisp and sharply tooled, giving the impression of a sculpture rendered in bronze. The details of her face are in the finest Athenian miniaturist tradition for the end of the fourth century B.C., distinguished by round eyes, a wide-bridged nose, full cheeks, and a small, delicate chin. Her hair, parted in the center and pulled back in a twist at the back, still bears traces of red paint.
