This black terracotta is broken at the waste and depicts a simple body decorated with globs of clay decorated with punch-marked decorations.  The face is modeled a bit more realistically with wide-open eyes and a full mouth.  The front of her hair is in a series of rounded ball-like curls and a circular starburst decoration is at the top.  The other oval globs frame the face of the goddess and cascade down what is left of her body.<br />
