A female once accompanied this abstract male. The two may have had the same meaning as the nearby couple. They were also similarly linked by physical form, though the female’s head had no projections, the meaning of which is unknown. The size of the circle formed by the arms suggests that the figure once held something, perhaps a perishable offering.
