A carved, gray stone head of a man from the neck up. The man’s nose is broken off. The stone at the broken edge is rougher and slightly darker than the surrounding carved stone. He has a mustache that extends into a short beard. The man’s eyes are open, but the stone around the sides of his eyes is worn, obscuring some detail. The man’s brow is slightly furrowed. He has thick locks of hair ending in swirls that frame his face. On his head is a tall crown. The exterior of the crown has a layered leaflike pattern.
