Her front right hand extends down with palm outwards in a boon giving gesture while the back right hand holds a sword.  Her left font hand holds a fruit or flower bud while her back left hand holds a shield. The whole is simply carved with rather subdued jewelry, but she does wear necklaces, bracelets, armlets and loose anklets as well as large circular earrings and a diadem across her forehead.  Her hair is arranged behind the diadem. The stele is subtly pointed and its only decoration is a band along the outside, although a throne is suggested at her knees.  A highly stylized lotus supports her right foot at the base.<br />
