Ivory is black, right profile of a standing figure in a skirt.
Muscarella Publication: "A barefoot figure dressed in an ankle-length garment, right. Shoulder-length hair, held by a fillet, is rendered in chunky style; the eye is oval, the nose fleshy and straight-bridged from the forehead, the mouth thick, the chin broken away; a swelling above the mouth may be a mustache. The garment has a V-neck, a fringed hem, and a vertical decoration joined at the left by a horizontal one, all rendered in chunky style. The figure carries an unidentified object - antler/branch?- in the left hand; the right is missing. The plain top edge is intact; the right and bottom edges are narrow bands and intact."
