This solid female figure rests her hands at her stomach, which directs our attention to the navel, perhaps emphasizing fertility. Along with her swollen stomach, her voluptuous hips depict the concept of fertility, as well. Her head is set directly upon her broad, rounded shoulders, which are characteristic of this period. Her face is round with an open, wide mouth, large nose and elongated eyes that gaze forward at us. She appears uninhibited in her nudity and doesn't mind our focus on her at all. Her coiffure is meticulously pulled back off her forehead and at one time she wore earspools. To her own satisfaction and ease, she stands before us with eternal confidence, radiating her womanhood in this lustrous reddish-orange slip. - (PF.3203)
