Small soft limestone figurine of a nude kneeling woman.
Condition: One end of piece including part of the right leg has been glued in place. Part of base and leg missing. Large chip on side of base. Entire surface very soft and is flaking. Details of face and hair originally painted, of which extensive traces remain. Faint traces of paint in curves around eyes suggest that entire body may have been painted flesh color. The figure is posed in a posture for which precedence may be found in other countries of the Near East.
