See here for description in main Herman Wald website.

Unlike Herman Wald’s individual portraits, this finely polished marble head represents a type. The young girl with the hairdo of a Russian peasant appears as a tangible memory of Eastern Europe. Her smiling lips and strong features exude serenity and a quiet spirituality, enhanced by the excellent carving technique in which Herman Wald utilized the spots and lines of the marble to enliven her features.
