Standing upright with a little bulge of the tummy, this figurine appears to be in a special posture. His arms and hands are in a peculiar position along with his legs. Although his feet are placed together, his legs sway out to the sides and swell a little bit. His wrists are accentuated below his arm bracelets. Notice how the bracelets are worn high on the arm right below the applied pellet decorations on his shoulders. His genitalia, breasts and navel are pronounced. Underneath his turban, longhair flows over his back and beautiful ornate earrings adorn his ears. The artist has elongated his nose, chin and entire face. How fortunate we are to dream of his meaning and of the culture he once belonged to. - (PF.3843)
