Visual Description : Anthropomorphic vessel resting on a flaring annular base. The flanged neck of the vessel is placed above the head as if it were a hat. The round body of the personage shows male genetalia, umbilicus and nipples. Stick-like arms are modeled with elbows bent at right angles and each hand grasps a bent leg. From the back of the head, a thick band with incised decoration descends half way down the body to end in an upward curl. Left arm is missing.
