Description: 

This sculpture is one of a few in the library's collection by an unknown artist with the initials "CCC". This particular piece is of the head and trunk of a female figure. She dons flattened headwear with a tangled design carved out of the brim. Her hair contains a similar design executed with a finer tool and extends down from her head and pools onto her back to complete an hourglass shape. Her face and form maintain a smooth surface save for simple carved lines representing the eyes, nose, and mouth features. The wood coloring lightens on the exterior breast and hip areas with darkening at the midsection and neck that further accentuate the figure's form.
