A small light brown marble sculpture depicts a stylized nude female figure with thin arms crossed beneath her breasts. The head is a flat ovoid plane, with the only feature being a simplified wedge-shaped nose, and it sits atop a long columnar neck. The figure has wide pointy shoulders, wide hips and curvy legs, and the foot at left is missing. The texture overall is lightly mottled, with darker brown areas at the shoulders, breasts, and lower legs. A horizontal groove at mid-leg defines the knees, and slight horizontal creases define the area where the legs meet the hips.
