Technical Observations: The object has a greenish patina with brownish-black areas and red and green crystals. A chip reveals a cupritic and metallic interior.
The object was made from single length of solid metal wire that was crudely shaped by hammering. It has a smooth, undecorated surface with slightly faceted edges, and it tapers slightly toward the plain terminals.
