Upper debris of KXB yielded a piece of rawhide cleanly cut to be characteristic a outline of the one horned or black rhinocerous. The edges were so well done that the figure could have hardly been have used under an opening in leather or cloth after the manner of the mica ornaments; and there were no holes for sewing into a garment. Possibly this piece was inlaid in wood being cemented fast in an incision with the hair side up.
