Copper alloy figure of a male deity. He stands with his left leg slightly bent to the rear, his foot angled, his weight on the right leg. His hands are held our in front of his body with perforations to hold uncertain objects side to side as opposed to top to bottom. He wears a pleated skirt with a tunic and possibly a jacket which opens to the rear; there are short parallel vertical incisions just below the jacket moulding. He has deep eye sockets for insets (now missing), a broad nose and a moulded mousth. His beard is depicted as small dimples around the jawline and he has moulded knobs for hair around his face. He may be wearing a conical cap.
