physical_description
The upper part of a terracotta plaque with a moulded relief of a full-frontal female head and upper torso. The plaque has an arched top with a rounded moulding below which at the centre there is a hole. The female has an elaborate headdress with a tiered conical topknot on either side of which is a pair of flaps that hang down over her hair. A variety of unidentified objects, which may include different weapons, project outwards from these flaps. She has a large circular earring in her right ear and a more elaborate openwork earring in the left ear. A scarf or uttariya is draped over her shoulders falling down either side of her breasts next to her arms.
