Catalogue Description: A simplified figure with a tall stalk-like torso and neck formed from one piece of clay with smooth rounded ball added to the front for the head. Two small triangular projections at the sides suggest arms. A small projection to the figure’s left suggests a breast. In contrast to the elongated body the hips are broad and rounded, the buttocks protruding sharply in back. The legs taper to tiny stump-like feet with rounded bottoms, making clear that the figure was not made to stand on its own.
