Information

Moulded and hand-finished three-dimensional model male head, is hollow, with smooth, domed crown, long tapered neck, protruding large ears, and moulded oval face with simplified, regular features, rounded eyes. Small, irregular round holes are preserved through the center of each ear and in the top of the head. Very coarse, reddish-orange fabric with abundant sparkling (micaceous) and black inclusions. The thick walls, heavy hollow neck, and completely broken bottom edges are compatible with heads that have broken from complete votive statues, but this cannot be proven.
