The women of Thebes are heading towards the same direction. Some hold flowers, others precious objects (ivory compasses or stone vessels). They are luxuriously dressed in their distinctive garment that leaves their ample cleavage unconfined, as well as the Minoan long skirt covered in beads and embroidery. The elaborate crown with spirals on
the front is held by tape and drops into long curls on the chest and back. The face is rendered in cross-section, with a thin black outline with both the almond-shaped eye and the hairy eyebrow on the front.
