Description
Created in the Tanagra style this lovely female stands upon a circular base. Her peplos (a heavy, sleeveless tunic) and himation (a rectangular- shaped mantle) are wrapped tightly around her providing areas of drapery folds. Traces of blue are seen on her peplos, with rose madder used on the borders of the himation. Her auburn hair is adorned with a laurel wreath and tied in a low chignon at back. Taranto, in southern Italy, is renowned for their richly colored terra-cottas, and it is probably this beautiful statue comes from that site. - (PF.5370)
