One of his legs has broken off at the knee joint. His head is attached to his body by means of thick white cord threaded through two small metal loops in his head and one large one at the base of his neck. His body is made from wood with modelling material hands, which are cracked. His face and hands are painted green and he has auburn hair and a brown goatee beard, both made from mohair and glued on. He wears his pointed cap to one side of his head. It is made from red velvet with green silk on the underside of the brim, black and gold-coloured metallic braid around the brim, and a green feather stuck to the left-hand side.
