Wooden, eyes inlaid with glass, right arm upraised, hand originally held spear(?). Perineal band and necklet of cloth. Cylindrical cap of a resinous concretion ("medicine"); "medicine" casket (with mirror) on front of body. The whole except face and mirror smeared with camwood pigment; face covered with black coating, probably of same substance as that of cap and casket. Two nails driven inback, apparently as afterthought, as this does not seem to be a "nail fetish". In top of cap is stuck a piece of cane, "gun barrel."
