A rectangular sandstone block with visible tool marks on the back, probably a fragment of a larger frieze.  On the front of the piece, a finely carved figure emerges in high relief, standing on a pedestal in contrapposto on proper right leg, with proper left arm at side and proper right arm raised holding a mace over shoulder.  The figure wears a thin garment around the waist and draped over the legs, a beaded belt, bracelets, and a beaded necklace.  The face is carved with deep-set eyes and wide, arching eyebrows.  The hair is pulled straight back and gathered in a large knot on top of the head.
 
Condition: Intact with age appropriate wear, overall in very good condition.  Small loss to the nose and mouth of the figure.  Museum quality custom mount.

Dimensions:  Height 7 inches (17.8 centimeters), Depth 2.5 inches (6.4 centimeters) 

Provenance:  Private Virginia collection, acquired by descent.
