Representation of an idol worked in a round package, with synthesized features in which its clothing and limbs have been especially highlighted. In this way, the figure presents his arms in a jar, holding an object -probably a lyre- in his hands. His legs have been worked through modeling, determined the division between both sides.

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.
