Reproduction patinated by hand. Mold made from an imprint of the original work, a statuette portraying an elegant lady of the Amenophis III period. She is dressed in a smooth, simple tunic which conceals her ankles but hugs her body. A discreet and delicately pleated shawl is draped over her shoulders. A heavy, finely braided wig frames her face and covers her shoulders. This contrast between headdress and clothing was a canon of elegance during that period. Dresses often hugged the body in a revealing way or, on the contrary, enveloped it in a plethora of refined decoration.
