Turkey Woman in Traditional Dress Adorned with Coins and Beads (Profile View)

Turkish lady with traditional dress. Her headdress is made of gold cloth, with a long orange scarf cascading down her back. The headpiece and scarf are decorated with numerous coins and colorful beads. The woman has long dark braids in her hair. Her dress is very fancy, with an embroidered skirt below a bodice made with brightly colored material. Her shoes are handmade from gold material. A tag attached to the base says "Turkish Peasant Mother." The figure stands 12 inches (30 cm) tall.
