On the short ends of the model appear a schematic figure with upraised arms, two flanking caprid quadrupeds, and, below, branches. However stylized the execution, the motifs are familiar from other contemporary media. Model coffins are known in Cyprus from the Late Bronze Age on; they probably reproduce examples of wood.
