This cylindrical shaped figure stands 51 centimeters tall. The eyes are cracked open with semi-circular eyebrows. The figure wears a single necklace and its sex organs are clearly defined.
The appraisal report shows that this figure was not found in good condition and was restored very poorly.  Those who restored the figure covered the surface with modern slip and paint. Additionally it was clear that both head and genitals had been separated from the piece then reattached.
