This head is thought to be apart of a larger figure but the body is missing. The head stands 10 centimeters tall and remnants of a mustache can be see on either side of the nose. The eyes are illustrated as semi-circles and the eyebrow is a straight line across the figures forehead. This depiction of an eyebrow is characteristic on many Nok figures.
The appraisal found this figure to be in poor condition. Erosion and scratches have caused considerable damage to the face and head has a whole. This figure is thought be missing beard, top of head, and tips of hair style.
