Description
Reduced to an elemental anatomical form, this red slip figure still projects a singular grace. As with the artwork of a child, we are unaware of spontaneity, freshness for observation. The artist sees the same things we see, but he has created it in a more abstract form, so that we take nothing for granted. The decoration is beautifully simple, with an emphasis on the nose ring, earrings and the skirt. The earrings and the nose ring denote her importance in society. She sits with one hand on her breast and the other hand at her side. Her face also shows some banding around her eyes, as if in a masquerade. She smiles at us disarmingly, calming us and creating a feeling of tranquility when we look at her, a true sign of a magnificent work of art. - (PF.3646)
