Overview

 Gojo means the young lady of Wu, one of the three Kingdoms in China. Unfortunately, the part from its forehead to its nose is lost, but its face is very pretty as its downward-looking slit eyes, its small lips and its well-fleshed cheeks show. The topknots were made separately and then nailed on.
