Overview

This large and very finely sculpted marble head appears to be a young girl, as one can read from the grace of her delicate characteristics. She tilts her head slightly to the left. Her arched eyebrows are restricted, with eyes set back, a delicate nose, all as fine as the small lips. Her hairstyle is charming, pulled towards the back in small bands, then tucked into a hairnet known as the saccos.
