Physical description

A human figure carved from wood. There are incisions depicting eyes, nose, a mouth with teeth, and hair on the face, and incisions depicting arms, hands, chest details and abdominal details on the torso. There are two carved holes, one at each side of the figure's neck. The legs have carved knees and a featureless block that joins the legs as one terminating piece, instead of feet. All of the incisions are filled with white material.
