Description Although badly worn and corroded, it is crudely and simply represented with a sub oval head, a collar around the neck, an arched back, four legs attached together (a small incised line marks the separate legs to the front and back) and a stumped tail at the back. The eyes are also possibly represented with stones. There is no other decoration on this artefact (PAS).
