From a large scale figural relief, the head is carved almost in the round. She would originally have been depicted with her head in a 3/4 position with her right cheek facing outwards to the front. Her left side is slightly roughly carved. The head is shown veiled, the wavy hair is centrally parted beneath a diadem. Her hair appears to be arranged in a bun beneath the folds of the veil at the back of the head.
