The stylized body consists of three distinct parts: head, bust and legs. The head rests on a broad neck. The facial features are schematic. The mouth is marked by a deep notch which also serves as a base for the nose, the bridge of which is protruding. The prominent superciliary arches create a shadowy area reminiscent of the eyes and merge with the receding forehead. The rectangular ears are set back on each side. The top of the skull is left rough. The angular shoulders are inscribed in the rectangle formed by the bust. The forearms are signified by two oblique grooves and rest on the belly. The legs are short and free.
