Euthydikas still has the shadow of a smile, and her body and skin generally tumesce with a bold openness that remains inexplicable to us (as does even the Kritian Bay, the most Classical sculpture we shall study). Notice also how her overall shape retains quiet reclining Archaic features. For example, the way her locks of hair gently shelter and enclose her face give her a Demeter-like look from certain perspectives (reminiscent of the numerous Archaic terracotta reliefs and plaques that have survived of this goddess).
