Description The figurine, which has an even light green patina, comprises a hollow-backed body with small back legs, a large head (with one ear broken) and oversize front legs which project at a 45 degree angle from the front of the body. The front legs have a phallic appearance, perhaps suggesting that this figurine has a fertility aspect (PAS).
