The work is carved in marble and represents a partially undressed female figure, with a cloak covering her lower parts, resting on an urn positioned on top of a pedestal.

Scholars suggest that such a statue likely represents a nymph from Greek mythology, a minor female deity often seen as a personification of nature.
