Low forehead, raised line of eyebrows, deep-set eyes with thick arching lids meeting at corners; raised circle for iris and small incised circle for pupil. Thin nose with deep indentations for nostrils. Small horizontal mouth with thick upper lip and thin lower lip. Small jutting chin, thick neck. Earlobe preserved on right side."
