This figure from a wooden tomb model decpits a striding man with left leg advanced. He is bald. Lines at the waist and on the legs indicate that the figure is wearing a short kilt. The legs end in pegs, without feet, for attachment to the base of a larger scene. The arms were separate components articulated to the main body at the shoulders, but they are now missing. There are no traces of color.
