To me, it looks like however her right hand was originally depicted, was carved over and left that "thread spool" shape that is shown now.
Her left hand appears to be showing some sort of hand sign, with the pointer finger and pinky finger sticking straight up, resembling the "hook 'em
horns" sign of University of Texas...lol.
The right hand may have been showing some sort of sign as well, or holding something that was discernible enough for someone to want to remove the
image, for whatever reason.
What is being described as clothing that falls down past her back & legs, resembles some sort of insect body. Perhaps it is meant to indicate a cape?
Not sure. It just reminds me of a dragonfly body.
I just looked at it again, and thought it also resembles a purse slung over her head with the straps accross her body and the purse itself being what
is down around her calves. A water/wine skin?
If the drawing is of a man, then it would have to be a "murse"...lol.
