Representation of a masculine idol worked in round bulk, with synthesized features in which his tunic and beard have been especially highlighted. The figure presents the left arm next to its silhouette and the other arm arched towards its belly holding in its hand a sack. Their legs have not been worked by being covered by the long tunic with decoration by means of incisions, making the division between both sides imperceptible.

The piece has perforations in its upper area. Terracotta figures have been part of cult statuary in many cultures, representing gods, demigods or mere mortals. Considered as religious offerings, this type of sculptures became witnesses of history, from Greek to Roman culture, being an important method of artistic expression due to its realization in clay, easily malleable and very resistant material.
