Marble stele (grave marker) of a young girl

Greek, Boeotian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 159

The girl's rather chubby body and the garment worn without a belt suggest a young age. It is interesting to note that of her sandals, only the soles are sculpted; the straps would have been painted. The objects in her hands are probably fruit, specifically pomegranates.
