Description Goat legs with incised hair and hoofs; tail projects horizontally at back ending in possible pin for attachment. Arms held out to sides; bearded face with nice features and flat nose; incised hair; horns with incised notches (Pitts). He has the stock physiognomy of a lecherous, semi-bestial character: scrawny limbs and torso, a flat chest and a pronounced pot belly, offset by creases of flesh (Hutchinson).
