Statue of a standing man wearing the traditional headdress of the dancers.
The man is muscular, the posture is stable and the face is determined which reinforces the feeling of power which emanates from this statue.
The body as well as the face are decorated with fine scarifications to lighten the appearance of the statue. The artist has found a good balance between strength and lightness for this representation.
