Description
The seated female effigy figure has a humpbacked, pigeon breasted body supporting a large broad head. Facial features include button eyes, a small nose, and a thick-lipped rectangular mouth with protruding bottom lip. The ears contain earspools. The shoulders are pointed and the arms loop to the side with hands on the waist. An appliquéd clay strip on either side of the chest emphasizes deformity. Another appliquéd clay strip coils around the hump on the back. The figure sits on a stool, only the back legs of which are modeled. Firing vent holes are located behind the ears and in the back below the hump. - (PF.4347)
