- OBJECT NUMBER:
The heart-shaped face, circular eyes, and expressive open mouth of this figure are in the tradition of the Dongson culture of Vietnam (c. 600 BCE– 100 CE). The figure’s pose conveys a timeless self-confidence while the large flat feet are eminently functional, enabling her to stand alone.
