Description
Elaborately bejeweled and turbaned, this elegant fellow holds a mysterious object to his mouth. Is it a musical instrument like a flute? Or food, part of the funerary feast? That is both his charm and his secret: while he seems perfectly at ease in our own world, he is clearly from a place which is exotic and completely different. - (PF.0962)
