The hair is attached to the container with bast cloth, which also attaches two animal horns lending the container a zoomorphic form.
A gourd forms the upper part of the container.
A smaller gourd acts as a stopper; a geometric face has been painted with kaolin, ears have been added to the side of the head.
The container has been painted in a matt, black colour and has been decorated with feathers.
