Terracotta statuette of a woman
3rd century B.C.
H.: 10 9/16 in. (26.9 cm)
Rogers Fund, 1906
The use of molds and the plastic medium of terracotta allowed Greek sculptors to explore variations on a theme with relative ease. Varying treatments of the head and drapery produce different effects in these two statuettes, each depicting an elegant standing woman draped in a himation (cloak) and holding a fan.
