Description
The goddess is standing on a spool-shaped base with her wight on the left, the separately-made arms missing and wearing armlets, gold earrings, and cloak tied in a knot at the hips and falling in cascading folds to her feet, her face with bow-shaped lips, straight nose, and eyes with indented pupils, her centrally parted wavy hair swept back to a chignon behind, surmounted by a stephane, and gathered ina high top-knot on the crown, two loose long tresses escaping onto each shoulder. - (LA.546)
