The figure is constructed of multiple fragments including the headdress, bird heads on hands, the main body, and ear spools. It was treated to remove excess adhesive from a previous assembly. The join between the two fragments of the headdress was filled and inpainted. Thermoluminescence testing was done on the body of the figure suggesting the last firing was between 900-1400 years ago, consistent with the attributed dates.
