Masterpiece

The infant is tied by a rope of mixed blue and red woolen ropes. It is placed in a rectangular piece of carpet. The headgear is made of wool, the inside is red, the outside it is blue. The head is placed on a pillow made of a blanket. Two pieces of stone of a rectangular shape are put on the eyes. The skin on the head and eyebrows is brown. On both sides of the infant a horn of an ox and a container made of a sheep’s breast for feeding the infant milk, are placed. It is a unique find.
