The small warrior strides forward, brandishing a bent spear held in his right hand. His left arm is lowered and held beside his thigh; perhaps originally, he held a shield in his left hand. He wears an incised crested helmet with raised cheek- pieces, a breastplate, and greaves decorated with spiral patterns. A tang extends from the bottom of each foot, indicating that the statuette was originally mounted on a wooden or clay base.
