Although conveying a certain charm, typical of traditional folk art rather than formal representations, this statuette shows highly stylized and naive shapes which do not totally lighten the strength of the rectangular block of stone.
The statuette depicts a standing man, with a mask, which characterizes him as an actor. He is dressed in a large cloak. As it is usually the case at that time for terracotta examples, our figurine was molded in two parts, the front and the back.
This statue was cast into a rosy beige clay covered with a white slip. The old woman, is seated on a stool; her face is covered with a grotesque mask and her gaze directed toward the baby she holds in her naked arms.
