This figure from a wooden tomb model depicts a striding man with left leg advanced. The figure is also bent slightly at the waist and leaning forward. The legs end in pegs for attachment to the base of a larger composition. The arms were carved as separate component and attached at the shoulders; they are now missing. Modelling of the figure indicates he is wearing a short wig and a short kilt. There are slight traces of color, including black on the wig and white on the kilt.
