[Unknown system] 730.235 & 639.245.1
Number of items: 1
Full description:

With a geometric basal border and a lattice frame surmounted by a tiny bark within an arch. The barks seem to have been done freehand but the figures are crudely outlined in dots. The arrangment of the motifs resembles some of the "Ceres" artist's work, but they lack the quality. A woman with long straight hair and in "ethnic" dress wears a three-pointed hat, an ankle length dress with a high collar and holds a small crude harp. She appears to be barefoot.
