Colored black. Face marks: double broken line between eye and ear, single one between eyebrows. Long, narrow pointed face with the stylization of the mouth especially, are features of the divine style, and suggest that the figurine represents a god, perhaps the third member of the triad which compromises the sky, the earth and their son.
