This terracotta statuette depicts a woman. The woman is recumbent but she is not naked. She looks forward, as if she is talking to someone or looking at something. She put her right arm on her right thigh but she holds something with her left hand. From Mesopotamia, Iraq. The Hellenistic period, 334-139 BCE. The Sulaymaniayh Museum, Iraq.
