In vivid clothes and paint, this magnificent
woman makes an impression that has lasted
through the ages. Whoever placed her in the
ancient shaft tomb might also have worn a bright
costume like hers, and might also have felt the
powerful emotions which hold her in their grip.
To be near a sculpture like this is to touch a
distant life, to enter into a forgotten world.
