A dominant, full length female figure, in sea-green robes, gazes towards the viewer, her long thick wavy hair flowing down her back. Beneath her robes, she has one leg placed forward, as if she might be striding toward the viewer. Her left hand is holding a ornate floral metal girdle under her bosom, her right hand contorts to hold a second similar girdle resting around her hips. Her hands, limbs and bosom are massive, and her lips very full and pink.
