This statuette represents an elegant figure from the era of Amenophis III. It has a smooth, supple tunic that hides the ankles but follows the shape of the body. A discreet and delicately pleated shawl rests on the shoulders.
Delicately braided, a heavy wig frames the face and masks the shoulders.
The elegance in this time resided in the opposition between hairdressing and clothing. These are most often close to the body, revealing or wrapping it with an overabundance of decorative finesse.
