Description

Anthropozoomorphic face, between that of a man and that of a bird, painted with beautiful black and red arabesques on a white background.

The eyes are embedded with two small, circular mirrors, each encircled in metal. Large, serated wooden rings hang from the earlobes. The ears and the lower jaw bone are made of attached pieces of wood.
