Wooden statuette of a woman. She is smiling; has a short black wig, no clothing, and stone and resin inlaid eyes. Her arms are from a seperate piece of wood and fastened to the body with a wooden pin; statuette’s left foot broken off; fixed to modern base. Thought to be Nubian because of her voluptuous body form and full round face.
