Photograph of a statue of a young woman, standing very straight with her eyes looking forward. She has long ringleted hair flowing over her shoulders, and is wearing a peplos, or heavy woolen garment, over her chiton – hence the name of the statue. Her right arm is hanging down straight by her side but her left forearm is missing, indicating that it was probably in a raised position and lost when damaged. The statue is the pale colour of the marble it is made from.
