Physical description

A wooden pig with carved ears, straight tail, snout and four legs, one of the front of which is broken off. Two decorative incised bands, one on each side, curve from the front leg to the corresponding rear leg. These feature alternating lime-filled triangles that define a zigzag pattern in relief. The face has no eyes.
