Visual Description : Teak wood has been carved into the form of a stout pregnant woman with an extremely wide and elongated neck. She is standing atop a circular platform, the circumference of which is incised with a band of triangles. Her hairless head is almost the same size as her bulging belly. Her facial features are very stylized. Her eyeballs appear to be "popping" out of their sockets.
