308 - Small tilted head

Sao, Chad, Niger

This is an oval shaped head which strangely has an almost cubist aspect: the triangular nose is very strong, the head seems to have two necks, and the two large marks crossing the cheeks disproportionately lengthen the face to a point.

Moreover, the character has the general air of astonishment or surprise. The mouth like puckered lips show his quiet resignation. The left ear is missing.
