Description

Cymbal player. dark green patina with a buff residue in the grooves. Cymbal player in intact except for the right arm. Flat figure stands on its own base, its left arm extended straight out of the side with a roughly circular disc attached perpendicularly to the end. There is a square notch cut out of the right side of the body as though made to hold a separately attached arm. Knob-like head has irregularly poked out ears and a rectangular projection on top which appears to be broken off. Facial features are crudely prepresented by the same method of heavy grooving.
