Statuette of a goat

The cast sculpture shows a goat standing in a tranquil posture on a square platform, rod-shaped at the base. Its head is raised high and decorated with horns hooked backwards. The goat is long-eared, the nostrils and eyes are emphasized by round depressions, and the mouth is shown as a furrow. The goat’s tail is short, twisted upwards. The stout body has angular openings on two sides. The figure is hollow and has jingling bronze balls inside.
