La Coryphée is hand-felted merino wool over a wire armature with cloth body. She has hand-made leather shoes. Her historically inspired costume features several layers of hand-dyed silk garments. French ribbon and a small jewel brooch embellish her ensemble. La Coryphée stands on a custom solid black walnut base, with a checkerboard motif on the top.
