This bronze object depicts a grotesque head with a misshapen face and bald pate with two creases on his forehead. Such heads are believed to represent pugilists, hence the misshapen features. His eyes rest askew under thick double brows with incised details. He has bulbous cheeks, while his exaggerated nose hooks to the left and his large open mouth is contorted in a crooked scowl. In addition, there are perforations at the top of the head and behind the proper left ear. - (X.0141a)
