Young girl holding a pigeon and wheat staffs. Girl facing right. Representative of 450 BC Parian styling.

Very young girls were depicted with rounder proportions, shorter limbs, plumper hands, and fuller cheeks. Judging by these criteria, the girl holding a pigeon and wheat staffs could very well have been as young as ten years old. The style of relief depicted relates to Attic influences, but the treatment of the hair, in particular, is Parian with a slight semblance to Salonica.
