Emerging from a hidden realm this zoomorphic figure is startling. This woman may represent a sorceress, who, in a ritual ceremony, would wear a mask of an animal or bird. The long beak painted orange, indicates a parrot. Extension on the sides of the face suggests feathers; as does the magnificent plumage. There is certainty of purpose in this woman. She knows what she wants and will not let anything stand in her way- a perfect companion to have in journeys to the unknown. - (PF.4369)
