The axe has an unusual shape, as if it were something used as a tool in planting. The wood is hollow. The garments have been repainted many times. The neck is full rather than elongated; the face is full and unusually individualized; it has a five o'clock shadow. It has been nicked in places and the gesso shows through. It is conceivable that the garments could be stiffened cloth, because they fall in a natural way, but there is not clear delineation between the ends of the sleeves and the beginnings of the hands.
