Terracotta vessel in the form of a human kneeling with a semi-circular stirrup handle attached at the back of the head and lower back. A cylindrical spout extends out at an angle from the top of stirrup handle at the point which it starts to curve downward. The figure kneels on one knee and holds a square shield in the opposite hand and a ring mace in the other. The figure is wearing a headdress with a monkey head in the centre front, above which is a tall plumage-like decoration. There are discs on either side of the headdress with excised depressions painted a red-orange. There are excised depressions (painted red-orange) on the decoration, the perimeter of the shield, and on the tunic-like garment the figure is depicted as wearing. There are break repairs and small missing pieces at the base of the headdress, around the hand holding the mace, at both points of contact with the handle, as well as where the plumage of the headdress meets the discs.
