Figure

350-290 BC

Boeotia 

Terracotta figure of an overweight naked woman. Her hair is drawn back and bound in a ribbon and she wears large earrings. Painted on her body are a necklace and flowers, perhaps representing tattoos. These tattoos may indicate that she is a foreign slave, perhaps a Thracian. The woman may be an elderly hetaira.
