She stands in a characteristic pose with her upper body exposed and lower body draped with a himation wrapped around her left arm, waist and legs. Part of marble on lower section has delaminated, leaving a large section of of rough, porous stone; area around this damage has discolored bright green, likely from contact with a copper or bronze artifact during burial. Marble is otherwise in decent shape. Whole sculpture could use some careful conservation.
