Object Description
Standing female figure in a carved loincloth, with a string of white beads around her waist. Her hair is styled in four plaits (carved). She has large breasts and a carved circular belly button. The figure is carved out of dark, heavy wood, and is finely carved. It is adorned with a carved left arm band. The figure is out of proportion, and the legs are too short for the torso. The figure is accompanied by a separate, modern-looking base with the same color finish to match the figure.
