A human figure carved from wood. There are incisions depicting eyes, nose, a mouth with teeth, and arms. There are three small holes along one side of the head. One leg is broken off below the knee, the other is carved with a clearly defined thigh, calf, and foot with distinct toes. The body is decorated with three incised vertical bands of downward-pointing chevrons, filled with lime. The figure is painted generally with red pigment, with black above the eyes. The back is plain except for the number 39 marked in green.
