Ghost, Stone 10, South-Western Quadrant - November 2017

Stone 10 contains art which, if I am interpreting it correctly, is pretty weird.

Stone 10 here looks like a tall, ghostly figure with a pair of striking eyes. The figure appears to have a large stomach reminiscent of a pregnancy. This pregnancy bulge itself apparently has a right eye and a mouth - presumably representing the features of the embryo inside. Does the relatively large size of the child's head mean that, once born, it will have a higher status than its mother? I wonder if this statue represents some mythical story? Is the mother the Great Goddess?
