The smoothing and polishing of alabaster sculpture was a laborious, intricate operation. The finished object was initially smoothed by rubbing the surface with dried skins (usually that of shark) and continued with thin ferns collected in damp soil. This task was usually appointed to the women who would painstakingly and delicately rub the surface with the wet ferns until it was completely smooth.
Only after this intervention alabaster completely shows its esthetical features: the transparency and colour effects, the veins, and offers its velveting to the touch.

She’s just so beautifully padded, the ultimate in comfort and luxury, full lips, her throat is a soft luscious handful, even her expression is soft, womanly, inviting
