A Syrian court beauty decorated the 5-inch tip of a flask carved from parts of an elephant tusk. Her parted hair falls down her back in plaits and in ringlets down her cheeks. She wears a tall crown, a collar of three rows of beads and a necklace of discs. The spaces in the crown and necklace were originally inlaid.
