Inscriptions
Condition Intact but not complete. Detail of the hair remains very clear, but the features on the face are less so. The eyes have been worn almost completely away, and the nose has a chip in one side. At the top of the forhead, just where the hair begins, is a hole. The top and back are uneven and show small holes on the surface. There is a small amount of dirty deposit at the base of the neck, and inside the hollow of the head.
