Headless seated statuette. Obese figure of globigerina limestone. Some damage to shoulders, arms, knees and feet, but in general in fairly good condition. Finish originally good but much pitted. Enormous buttocks with legs tucked up to the right and arms asymmetrically placed, both hands resting on right thigh. It is larger than the previous ones, with a fairly regularly cut socket in the shoulder pierced by six biconical perforations. Oval base fairly well preserved.
