Technical Observations: The statuette is a solid cast. The lower portion of the body below the arms appears to have been worked by hot working, cold working, or both to form the pointed tip. The earring fragment in the left ear perforation was probably made by hot working a strip of metal. The figure is intact except for the bottom tip. The patina is light and dark green over black.
