This figure features a modelled human figure complete with appliqued facial features, coiffure, and ear spools lying stretched out on a flat surface supported on four legs at the corners, hence the name bed figures. The figure appears to be strapped to the bed with a wide decorated band across the midsection. Across the top and bottom ends of the bed are arches. The bed has modelled decoration and remains of red and white pigment.
