Cypriot sculptors assimilated influences not only from the East but also from the Greek world. Carved in local Cypriot limestone, this figure is a kore (maiden) of the type well known from examples of marble, terracotta, and bronze. East Greek works would have provided the most immediate sources of inspiration.
