Girl on a Round Base is a life-size and life-like sculpture of a naked girl. Supported on the balls of her feet and by her hands, her body arches up in an overtly erotic manner. In places her ample white flesh bulges and gathers in soft, round folds. Her head is flung back, upside down; her lips are parted and eyes open. Her hairline is straight to emulate that of a doll. According to Butler, the absence of pubic hair came from his inability to make it sufficiently sculptural.
