Part of and unweighted spear-thrower (antler) oval in section. Most of the head with the forelock for a hook remains, but it is broken through the muzzle. One ear is complete and modelled in three dimensions, and the crest of the mane above the head is shaped to a rounded point. The eyes have a little modelling and are engraved with a double outline, with the tear ducts and eyelids shown, and the beard and cheek are shaded.
