The cylinder ends in an open spout behind which are two horns that sprout out across the cylinder and curve up to form a crescent shape. Underneath the horns are two little attached globules which may be ears. Rising from the back of the horns and connecting down to the body is a stylized hump which is thin in depth and curves back away from the head.

Found in Talish, northwest Iran near Caspian Sea. The horns are restored; body has been mended but all parts are original.
