Other images

Forequarters of a horse. The facial features are done crudely but with lively effect. The mane falls to the left. The body and upper legs are covered with short incised strokes. At the top, at the highest point, is a pin to secure some object or vessel above. There is a hole 5mm. in diameter in the chest between the legs; there are three other small holes, ca 1mm. in diameter, one below the chest, another at the back of the right side of the neck, and the third on the top of the head between the ears. These must have been to secure the horse to a larger object.
