Physical description

A wooden pig with carved ears, tail, snout and four legs. Two decorative incised bands, one on each side, curve from the front leg to the corresponding rear leg. These feature alternating triangles filled with lime that define a zigzag pattern in relief. Curvilinear designs on the cheeks are also filled with lime. The face has no eyes.
