Representation of a female idol worked in round shape, with synthesized features in which her breasts and extremities have been especially highlighted. In this way, the figure presents his arms in a jar, holding an object - probably an ex voto - between his hands. His legs have been worked through incision, determined the division between both sides. Especially noteworthy is its zoomorphic face, worked through modeling, in which an animal face is intuited.

The piece has perforations in its upper area. Terracotta figures have been part of cult statuary in many cultures, representing gods, demigods or mere mortals. Considered as religious offerings, this type of sculptures became witnesses of history, from Greek to Roman culture, being an important method of artistic expression due to its realization in clay, easily malleable and very resistant material.
