A zoomorphic male Chamba sculpture from northern Nigeria with human features in the form of slightly bent legs and male genitalia, which then changes to the depiction of a bird creature from the hip onwards. Especially the jagged part of the back, also continued on the head, cites a phenomenon that the bird suggests similarities to dinosaurs with an ornamentation applied on the outside of the wings, consisting of small stones in diagonally arranged stripes worked into the crusty patina. The huge beak and the large round eyes are dominant; altogether covered with a reddish-brown patina and white kaolin pigments.
