He is seen from the front, his chest presented in two cones. The other two characters face the opposite direction. They constitute the handle of the sling, entirely openwork. The first is a drummer, leaning on his musical instrument. The second is a mask, endowed with its important loincloth of fibers.

    These slingshots were used to hunt small animals such as birds or small game.
