  • Small female head with crescent diadem

The facial type on this small head is a variant of one from Praxiteles: an oval face, with long thin nose, small hidden eyes, a yearning gaze, lips slightly parted with an arched upper lip, the small rounded chin set off by a deep indentation below the mouth.
