Terracotta head of a veiled woman


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 164

The head is mold-made and solid. A mantle covers the head except for the eyes and nose. The edge drops over the forehead in loose pleats and is tightly wrapped diagonally across the face from the right side down to the left, covering the mouth. The fabric is grayish pink, with small sparkling inclusions.
