Female figure made in such a way that it seems to sit by the position of the hands and feet. It is a very simple figure that insinuates the shape of the woman’s breasts and with greater detail in the face, using the resource of the eyes and eyebrows receded to give greater personality to the portrayed.
It can be included in the group of Arabic votive sculptures made up of enthroned women and female heads that were made in alabaster, all of them presenting very similar facial features.
