Male
Description:
Wooden, not sexed. Chequer pattern on top of head. Part of resinous fetish concretion remains. Type of ear, convention of reducing arms to straight ridges forming sides of frame for "medicine" on front of body, straight or only slightly bent legs, relate this figure to those of the more westerly region; the more massive and rounded form and the convention of representing the shoulder blades by a simple continuous ridge across the back defining the outline of the simple shelf-like shoulder region indicate Stanley Pool influences.
