Description Quite slender with exaggerated horns. P47 - Although lacking fine detail, the major features of the head have otherwise been modelled with some attempt at realism. Two rounded knobs behind the horns represent the ears and swellings on either side of the head mark the eye sockets. A low rounded projection emerging from the brow is of uncertain significance. . .
