This male doll has short white synthetic hair with a widow's peak. The face, ears, and hands of the doll are made from an orange colored wool felt. He is wearing a black felt txapela (hat). The white collared shirt, black jacket, and blue pants are all made from cotton. The white socks, and red gerriko (sash) are both felt. The doll has brown abarkak (leather shoes) with black laces made from thread. He is holding a wooden walking stick in his left hand (a natural twig). There is a black 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.
