Visual Description : Large wooden carved male figure with hands at sides. Stylized, decorative, low relief carving filled with a lighter substance decorates the figure and gives it its features. There is a circular hole where one may expect a belly, and several smaller holes in the area between his lower legs. His genitals are covered by a small grass skirt which is tied around his waist. There is fine rope tied to small holes in the nose and ears and also loosely around his neck.
