The left hand figure carries a trapezoid basket supported by the straight left arm. The right arm is held in front of the body with a large jar in the hand. The right hand figure holds a fan in the pendant left hand, whilst the right arm is held out in front of the body, the hand holding a b3st-jar. The bodies are voluptuous, with swelling thighs, high narrow waists and wide pointed breasts. The faces have wedge noses, slit mouths and painted eyes (Garstang 1904b , 223; 1907 a , 94-5, fig.84.
