Upper part of a figurine
This hollow blackish-brown figurine has a flat mask-like face, although it does not appear to be a separate mask similar to object 279. The top of the head is concave, with three transverse grooves and a short triangular projection at each side, one of which is broken. The ears are also prominently modelled, and the entire surface of the body is covered with punctates and transverse grooved designs. The piece appears not to have been repaired and the body wall is c. 5 mm thick at the waist.
