Description The head, on its long neck, is turned half right and lifted loftily and enquiringly. Details of the plumage are indicated by incisions, the curves of the tail feathers by semicircles with some hatching and the wings by rounded chevrons and more hatching. There are hatched lines on the neck and the comb, and wattles are shown by incised lines and nicks (Bagnall Smith)
