The two-armed figure dances with his right leg raised and wrapped around a club.  His left arm crosses his body and rests above the club and his right hand is raised almost to his ear.  Tassels hang from him hips and under his armpits adding a great sense of movement to the whole figure. Multi-hooded snakes are at the base and also around the bottom of the club.  He wears much of jewelry including bracelets, anklets, necklaces with should loops and an elaborate belt.  His stomach protrudes over the belt.  He also has large earrings and a jewel encrusted crown.  His eyes bulge out and his mouth is open showing his teeth. He is a pair with 1980/2.291.<br />
