Description: Finely worked out bronze statuette of an unclothed man with Nubian features. He stands with his weight on his right leg and has his left one slightly bent and tilted outwards. The right hand and the left elbow lean on a long, gnarled staff. The left hand supports the head. The figure stands on its original stepped orginal base. The head is slightly flattened on top, which indicates that the statuette served as a support, possibly for a furniture.
