Nok column-statue with very fine coating
This exceptional 1,500 year-old female statue-column is quite thin. The delicate face is topped by a bilobed hairstyle made with two lateral shells. The necklace is quite large, and the belt and loincloth ornamentation is particularly rich. On the whole, this statue exudes an extreme femininity and an astonishing modernity.
This is a rare if not unique work of art.
