Montage created from an older torso to which has been added the bust, arms and legs.

The figure is captured in an apparently menacing pose, with the body leaning forward as a result of the assembly of the different pieces of the sculpture.

The arms and bust were a later addition and are slightly larger than those of the original torso. The five toes on the right foot correspond to the same time period as the body.
