Description: a pleasant combination of naturalism in the stance, in the build of the body, and in the details of the horns and beard, and of stylization in the hatched rib that presumably denotes a stripe of dark hair along the backbone (Toynbee) Quite a large unusual piece. Stands with head turned to left. Fairly large horns, left ear broken, large beard under chin. Along the back is a strip divided in two by a longitudinal groove and with paralled transverse grooves along its length from the top of the head to the tail where is is turned up at the rear to form the tail. Legs in poor condition, right rear leg broken and repaired. Rather long, graceful neck.
