The use of white as the only color in a figure is very rare in this region, and lends a distinct individuality to the piece. The simple anatomical form is overshadowed by the ingenuity of the design itself. The head is proportionate to the body, though the legs are very small and the shoulders are very broad. This broadness is due to the fact that the arms are able to move within the socket of the shoulder, adding a distinct human quality to the overall design. The face is equally descriptive. The eyes are expressive and alive, accentuated by the slightly ajar mouth. The hair is both sculpted and etched, adding three- dimensionality to it. The overall design by the artist demonstrates the creativity and passion for art at the time, making us aware of how constantly evolving art is. - (PF.4076)
