Description

The mask is doubled, the features reduced to a few strokes. On the convexity of the tusk there is a lizard in low relief not quite opposite to, slightly above, the mouth piece on the other side. The latter is placed near the middle of the tusk and surrounded by a raised rim, lozenge-shaped, with its long axis directed transversely.
