The base, originally connected to the claws of the hawk, is lost, as well as inlays of the eyes and eyelids.
The standing falcon is shown without crown. The bird's head is characterized by its curved beak and stylish brands of its kind.
We can easily recognize the feathers carved upper body and skull. The wings are folded on their backs and their intersecting points,the long tail feathers differ in range, and the claws aredisproportionate.
This figure was probably part of a group or was the decoration of a sarcophagus of a falcon.
