Male doll wearing a red txapela (hat). The face, ears, and hands of the doll are made from an orange colored wool felt. Underneath the clothing, a pink wool covers the harder structure of the doll. The doll has short synthetic brown hair with a widow's peak. He is wearing a long-sleeved collared white shirt and long pants, with a red gerriko (sash) made out of felt around his waist. He is playing a black txistu with details in white and red thread. He also has a small red tamborada (drum) made from leather, red felt, and black and white string hanging on his left shoulder. He is wearing white felt shoes with red laces made from thread. His facial features, eyebrows, eyes with pupils, and a red mouth, are hand stitched. There is a red string attached in a loop at the back of the txapela, indicating the possibility that this was an ornament for a Christmas tree. The doll is not flexible, but has a distinct armature that holds the arms and legs in a specific pose.
