Description

Circa 200 BC


Perhaps from centurpipe, Sicily, depicted wearing a chiton, her body twisting spirally to the right, head thrown back and turned sharply to her right. Left leg raised behind her, arms positioned out before her, red-painted hair tied in a chignon, chiton preserving blue and pink strikes, on a reelshaped base perhaps original to the figure.
