Eyelids are cut-out and follow the shape of the black eyebrows. Eyes are carved in relief, and are white and white with mustard coloured pupils. The nose is long and narrow with two holes at the end for nostrils. Cheek bones are defined with small raised ridges and on either side of the mouth are three sets of carved grooves indicative grinning. The moustache is painted black, is separated in the middle, and tapers to a flared point at the end. The mouth is carved in relief with a slight opening to the back. Two small pegs as teeth protrude from the right side. Teeth on the left side are missing, leaving two holes.
