Description
Breasted -- 2. Boston, Museum of Fine Arts, 13.3657 (Pl. 98c). Perhaps a woman as the skin colour is yellow. The face is unfinished, and the whole figure is crude. She stands with both arms reaching toward or into a rounded red object, possibly an oven, standing on a tray-like platform which in turn rests on an approximately cubical block. Both the figure and the raised object are on a single base.
