A standing male figure that has a skull rather than a fleshed head. He wears a knee-length red coat with white feathery designs. He also wears dark yellow trousers with white detail. His arms are resting at his sides, his right hand holding a dark blue hat with a yellow rim and white details. He has black hair around his head, but not on top. He stands on a domed base with a light green and yellow flower with feathery white designs on either side.
