402 - Small truncated head


This is a standard Koma stopper, the features rather coarse, but well marked. As is often the case, the mouth is relatively large and horizontally parted. The strong and forceful nose is represented as two holes. The chin, the ears, and the eyes were added afterwards. The head is capped on the front by a crown of hair, as it would seem. The top of the head is concave and has a hole in its center. Is this a trait indicative of the firing process of the piece or one with the object of some action of worship?

The piece is perfectly vertical.
