Tooley (p, 199-200): Female figure in walking pose, wearing a white skirt, the hair and pigtail held by a white fillet. On the torso is a white necklace passing between the breasts. On the head is a small trapezoid basket supported by the left arm bent sharply at the elbow. Right arm broken. The slender physique, dress and arm pose separates this model from those in the chapel (Chassinat 1911, 49; Breasted 1948, 64, pl. 57; Vandier 1958, 149; Noblecourt 1981, 115, fig. 110). Dated as above.
