Copper-alloy figure of a horseman. He has distinctive dreadlocks, a drooping moustache and a full beard, also in locks. His eyes appear very lifelike because they are inlaid with silver. He wears a cloak, a tunic and boots and holds horizontally, originally above the horse's back on which he once sat (the horse is now missing) a circular shield with a central boss. His lower right arm is missing.
