"Here the direction is the same, but the attributes are different.
The Amazon probably held her bow in the left hand, there must have been
a quiver as shown by the baldrick. We note that in the preliminary sketch
the artist had wanted to give her a pointed cap but in the final drawing
changed it to a rounded cap. She wears a sleeved jacket which may have
been part of a combination with trousers."
