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 />

A light sketch of a large procession of men and animals walking from the right to the left of the scene.  The first few men walking are holding instruments and playing while walking.  As the scene continutes, men and beast walk together; some of the animals seen are a boar, a ram, dogs and an elephant outfitted with a decorative covering and carrying a large vessel.  In the background a building with columns sits on a tree-crovered hilly landscape.
