This woman sits on a low chair and wears a long skirt. The bulk of her hair is in a bun on the back. She looks to her right side (facing her baby). The chest is bare and her baby suckles the right breast. From Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq. Old-Babylonian period, 2000-1500 BCE. The Sulaimaniya Museum, Iraq.
