The sculpture in white alabaster shows a nude woman kneeling, her body is arched so the top of her head touches her toes. The form is rounded, her thighs slope upward to her stomach. Her large breasts point to the right. Her arms are bent to frame her head. Her hair is yellowish brown. The sculpture sits on a square, shiny, black base.
