This beautiful figure stands before us in the process of performing her daily tasks. Under her left arm she carries a vessel, while her other hand is placed comfortably on her hip. The linear and geometric designs are accentuated by the polychrome colors that are earth tone. These designs suggest her rank in the community, while adding beauty to her. Her hair is long and cascades down the back, while adding to her womanly figure. As a whole she portrays the pure and total image of woman, who was considered a crucial part in the continuing of society and tradition. - (PF.3957)
