A terracotta head of a woman
India, Gupta Period, circa 5th century
Well-modeled with soft features, her face with full lips, well-defined nose, and prominent eyes with incised irises below gently arching brows, her finely combed hair arranged in a bun and secured with a beaded fillet.

Her prominent eyes and the graceful contours of her lips and jaw exemplify the sophisticated elegance of Gupta period sculpture (circa 320 to 550 CE).
