Head of a Woman

The shape of this statue's headdress, though fragmentary, indicates that the subject is a non-royal woman. Her image has considerable delicacy and charm, but figure is not a portrait. Her tapered face, large eyes, slightly raised eyebrows, and wide, upcurved mouth are all stylistic hallmarks of sculptures made under Hatshepsut and Thutmose III.
