Description
Looking more like a sturdy, little warrior then a female, this charming figure features an exaggerated nose ring and fan-shaped hat. Upon closer examination we see the raiment’s of an extremely detailed sculpture. Using burnished hues of orange and black an elaborate costume is outlined. Even the figure's hands are delicately outlined, showing graceful, slender fingers. For all the squareness of her frame there is still a feminine aura to this piece that transcends the artists skilled hands. - (PF.2706)
