Heads have much in common but are of three or four sizes, and owing to appliqué parts being taken from different moulds, and to tool-working on finished casts, show much individuality. In general, hair curves in front of ears to point not far from corners of mouth ; on forehead either descends to point (009. h) or is cut away in a point (009. h. 9). Eyebrows are denoted by a slight ridge, generally with incised line, sometimes (009. h. I) scored for hair. Eyes slanting, marked merely by slits (009. h. 52), or by slits with punctured hole, or compass-drawn circle (009. h. 8). or in high relief with puncture (009. h. I o). Noses small but rather broad; nostrils drilled. Mouths small, often with punctures at corners. Chins very full. Great variety in dressing of back hair (see separate numbers); but generallya topknot with short pigtail hanging from it and second main pigtail from back of head looped up again to crown.
