A figure by the same artist was auctioned by Zemanek-Münster on 17 November 2018 as lot 158 (cf. AHDRC 0156987).

Both figures show great similarities in terms of body shapes, physiognomy and hairstyle. Both wear the same necklace with a pendant between the breasts and at the nape of the neck. Particularly striking are the prominent scarification marks on the back of the figures, some of which are arranged in concentric grooves.
