Gift of Margaret H. and Albert J. Coudron
This terracotta is modeled in the shape of a ram’s head.  The snout is softly modeled by hand and his two horns form coils to either side of his head.  A decorative band with punch-marked floral decoration on it divides the snout from the area of the head with the spiral horns.  The horns are decorated with lines and encircle a donut shaped element in the center.  A floral motif is between the two above the decorative band and other punch-marked floral forms decorate his snout at the top and at each cheek. His eyes are incised in a diamond pattern with a circular center and his nostrils are simple indentations.<br />
