This cross-legged woman has black bitumen highlights on her eyes, mouth, and earrings. There are traces of red pigment on her headdress, necklace and hands. These pigments may have religious associations, or they could simply be part of the makeup of a woman of fashion. It is easy to forget from this great distance what a colorful world these people lived in. - (PF.0663)
