A bust of a young woman, in white and pink marbles on a green marble base. She wears a soft cap, decorated with plumed ostrich feathers and floral ornaments. Her hair is drawn back and held in a net at the back of her head. She has a tightly curled fringe. At her throat she wears a white ruff. There is a small puncture mark in the marble, on her left cheek. Her dress is made from pink marble, and is decorated with diagonal ribbing. At the shoulders are padded, puffed sleeves. Around her neck she wears a chain, from which is suspended a quatrefoil shaped pedant, with three tear drop shaped pendants suspended from it.
