This piece seems very old and has me very confused as to what it is. A bust with holes to mount it on something. It is made of red/brown clay with a black slip for the hair and moustache. There is something like red ochre in the eye sockets and nostrils. Reminds me of Southern face jugs sort of, but not completely. it's quite heavy and hollow on top of the head as if to attach a wig to it.
