Terracotta figure of a boy with a cock, boy sprawling back across a low bench with finely modelled legs, leaning to the viewer's right, both hands holding a big bunch of grapes out of the way of a very large predatory cock approaching from the left, boy is naked apart from himation draped loosely round his left shoulder, hair pulled up into three feather-like curls on top of his head. Pale orange-brown clay (with mica), white coatin, red on cock's comb and wattle, rose-madder on grapes, orange on face, arms and legs of boy, black on background.
