Description Simple but effective depiction. Forelegs joined but depicted by a groove running vertically at front and rear of legs. Similarly the rear legs are joined with a groove at the front and at the rear the tail is shown as a thin projection running from the rump to the feet. Quite a thin profile (c.7 mm thickness). Large forward pointing crescentic horns on top of the head in front of small, rear pointing ears.
