Description The shape is not fully in the round and is simple and fairly crude; the surface is undecorated. However, the outline of backward-pointing horns is discernible, also probably a beard rather than a lower jaw. The tail is short and turns down. The legs are short as well: the front ones are joined together, the back ones are separate, with the right leg in front of the left (Bagnall Smith).
