The figurine has obvious traces of sacrifices, there is a small hole on the top of the head, probably for the pouring of a magical substance, the hands are tied with leather ribbons that are wrapped around the neck and pass to the back, the figurine is surrounded by valuable antique Dutch trade beads. The figurine’s face is frozen in a silent scream, the shape reminiscent of the figure of a baby. Hard wood, strong patina, traces of sacrifices.
