The tip of the nose, the end of the chin, and both ends of the crest of the helmet are missing. The surfaces of the garland, of the hair, and, to a lesser extent, of the face are worn. A magenta-colored pigment remains in both the garland and the hair. She wears a helmet with a high crest and a garland bound around it. Small curls escape from under the helmet around the forehead, and the hair falls in long locks at the sides.
