Object Description

A fine Nabataean terracotta enthroned female figurine in a forward-facing position. The woman’s legs are bent in a sitting position, likely on a throne, with her feet perched on a platform. One arm is bent forward, unfortunately now missing the forearm while her right arm is bent upwards with her palm facing outwards. The figure is nude wearing only shoes, possibly sandals from the incised lines and accessories including a bracelet, necklace and a wig. The wig is parted in the middle with plaits to each side possibly showing Greco-Egyptian influence. The facial features have been rendered in a naturalistic manner, the concave back is unadorned.

Date: Circa 1st century BC – 1st century AD
