Alabaster head of a woman with a wig-style plaster curls hanging in Egyptian fashion at the back of the head. Missing part of the nose. Two holes in the plaster wig at the upper part of the neck served initially for a necklace. The eyes still retain lapis lazuli and on either cheek small strips had been carved out and were filled in with a strip of different alabaster.
