Description
This beautifully preserved female figure is shown in a kneeling position, which was a common pose for such female sculptures. Her position suggests that she might be doing something related to her domestic duties, tending the hearth or grinding corn. Her face retains the faint remnants of a black mask and other facial paint common to the region. Her elaborate colors, costume and jewelry suggest she is a woman of rank. This figure represents nobility, domesticity and femininity in one gracious combination. - (PF.2750)
