Interesting light wooden statue with a deep sense of interiority. The piriform face with soft features has half-closed eyes, a large nose, and ends in a braided beard represented schematically. The hands frame the chin. A complex headdress covers his skull. The treatment of the body plays on the contrasts of full, round shapes and angular edges.
