Description Standing figurine of a naked female probably representing Venus, has left arm outstretched and right arm resting on the stomach. The artefact is very crudely made with thick tendrils representing hair, thick rectangular body, very thick neck and large sub-oval head. There are no discernible joints on the arms or lags. Eyes and mouth are made by punched holes (PAS).
