A standing male figure with an enlarged head, almond-shaped eyes, a blunt nose and an oval mouth. The beard is composed of a round carving. The cylindrical neck leads to angular shoulders and a scarified chest. Straight arms with flat hands flank the long torso, the legs truncated with bent knees that lead to thick feet with incisions for toes.
