Stucco figure in the shape of the head and neck of a camel. The figure is very naturalistic, with the mouth open and the upper lip drawn back from the teeth. A wooden guide-peg can be seen protruding from the nostrils. The figure was modelled on a core consisting of bundles of reed bound with strings. Traces of red paint were used to cover the curly fur on the underside of the neck
