Maidservant Sifting The Corn
This statue depicts a maidservant seated on a base and sifting corn with a sieve, which is laid on a basket on the base in front of her. The face of the maid is round and carefully rendered, showing the features of a middle-aged woman. The torso shows the sagging breasts.
The body was painted light cream, with faint black, very close-cropped hair. The legs are bent upright in front of the chest and the hands hold the sieve exactly over the basket. The workmanship is mediocre
