The face with finely carved features and painted ochre red, the cosmetic lines, eyebrows and pupils in black, the cornea in white. The wig has remains of gesso and black paint, a fixing dowel visible in the centre.
Vertical crack consolidated. Chips between the brows.
As there is no fixing point for a beard, the mask is likely that of a female.
