Description Quite a long thin body. Stands with right hand raised to side of head, left arm out from side slightly. Head tilted up and to the left. Strangely muscled, almost humpbacked. Face worn but 'facial features are convincingly bestial: close-set beady eyes, a small snub nose, a small puckered mouth, pointed ear(s), and a wispy goats beard' (Hutchinson). Fingers depicted on hand. Crossed moulding over chest suggests a cloak but no evidence on rear. More description in Hutchinson.
