The woman depicted in this figurine wears a decorated, fringed robe and hairstyle. She is holding a baby on her back, underneath her robe. Her hands and feet were attached separately and are now missing. Two holes for the hands remain on the front. A hole on the top of the head indicates that the woman once carried a basket of offerings. The surface is worn, and the piece was cracked and repaired.
