Limestone female figure seated on a rocky outcrop. The woman is headless but otherwise complete. Her body is wrapped in an himation, her right hand concealed and pulling the garment up over her chest. The left hand is exposed and holds a bird. The right leg is stretched out more than the left which is bent and behind the other. The figure is carved in one with a rectangular plinth that is worked smooth on all four sides. The figure may be a Muse.

- Curator's comments
- The material, scale and style suit a Tarentine workshop although there are no obvious parallels in the round such as this. It could have been part of a pediment or a free-standing figure.
