This sculpture has a very old encrusted surface, there are signs of deep wear and patina on the hook portion as well, evidence of much use. The facial features reveal the early style of this piece; the pronounced eyes are carved in a slightly asymmetric fashion, giving the sculpture “life”. The back of the hook has been carved in concave form, and projecting outwards is the large loop which was used to suspend the hook. The sculpture is strong when viewed at all angles. There is a very old and stabilized age crack on top of the forehead, otherwise in excellent condition.
