Description The figurine is in extremely poor condition, is only a fragment and has an odd shape. The item appears to be the head of a panther. The head and its features are poorly visible, however the neck of the panther is too long in portion to the head. The neck is triangular shape in cross-section and is obliquely angled with some curvature. The terminal of the neck is broken, but this is not a recent break. The features of the head are most obvious in profile. The mouth is slightly open. The ears are in high-relief, but their shape is difficult to define. The surface of the item is rough, and there are patches of a brown coloured patina (PAS).
