Description A prominent knurled rib representing the dorsal crest runs its length and the body, legs, and back of the ears are decorated with horizontal and oblique incised lines which schematically represent hair. The boar's head is triangular with a straight lower edge and the ears are upright, rounded, and forward-facing. The flat-ended snout is simplistically rendered and no other facial features are represented; the head is smooth and there are no tusks (Worrell).
