Description
Manchester Museum website: Wooden figure of a woman holding a box (or basket) of offerings on top of her head, supported by her right hand. With her left hand, she holds a lead attached to an animal walking next to her, probably a ram. The animal has a short, upright tale, and horns that curve backwards. The woman is wearing a skirt wrapped around her lower body and tied in a knot under her left breast. She also wears bracelets at her wrists, and a necklace or decorated strap around her neck, falling between her breasts. The top of the box that she carries is carved to show the food offerings inside it.
