Only the head remains of this figure, the body is missing. The head is oblong like a tear drop. Eyes and nose are exaggerated and there are no ears on this figure. The pupils and nostrils are perforated. Under the nose are traces of a mustache and on the chin there are signs of a goatee.  
The appraiser found this piece to be in poor condition. The report showed several fractures all over the figure. Some of the main facial features such are missing from erosion. Even-though the figure is in poor condition the appraiser is certain of its authenticity.
