The standing female figure is very blocky. She is wearing a conical headdress with ear-like extensions on either side. The circle around the face indicates some decoration hanging from the headress onto the neck. The arms are at the sides. There is an incised net-like pattern over the dress, except at the bottom which has a row of squares. It is light orange with darker veining.
