he presented sculpted architectural element was supposed to act as a cantilever supporting the cornice crowning the body of the church or monastery buildings. At the front, the ashlar was carved in the form of a cantilever with a sculpted female head featuring a flattened, generic shape, but with convex eyes. The head is topped with a stylised crenelated crown (Latin corona muralis). On the left there is a fragment of the arcade theme visible. The rudimentary development of the face and unworked side surfaces indicate that the element was not finished.
