    Statue representing a standing female figure. The legs are bent, the hips are wide, the arms are folded at the level of the torso and the hands come to hold the hanging breasts. The sculptor has taken care to make large nipples to accentuate the nurturing role of the breasts.
    The face is benevolent and the head is topped by a cup.
    This is a rather rare representation of a cup bearer. The sculpture is simple but, it is very delicate and balanced.
