Ivory, four fragments including human parts and decoration of garments or wings.

Muscarella Publication: "Fragments of a composite sculpture in the round. the remains are too fragmentary to allow for a satisfactory interpretation beyond the following suggestions: o one side there is relief that appears to be the kilted thigh and part of an exposed leg of an individual; the "kilt" has a panel motif at the base ans waist (?). To the side of the kilt is a wing decorated in herringbone pattern. Two dowel holes exist in a flat area at one side and another exists above the kilt; perhaps they held part of the body and arms made of separate pieces of ivory. Above the uppermost of the two peg holes are curls that seem to be the ends of hair. Two small fragments have the panel motif and are part of the kilt. The figure seems to have been a sculpture of a winged figure."
