Male doll with short brown synthetic hair. The face, ears, and hands of the doll are made from an orange colored wool felt. He is wearing a black felt txapela (hat), a pink and black check cotton jacket edged in black ribbon, a white cotton collared shirt, blue cotton pants, white felt socks with abarkak (leather shoes) and black laces. He also has a red and gold gerriko (sash) around his waist. His facial features, eyebrows, eyes with pupils, and a red mouth, are hand stitched. His cheeks are painted pink. He holds a wooden stick (a natural twig) in his left hand. There is a black and gold string attached at the side 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.
