This wooden statue depicts a shaved servant carrying a vase for unguent, or ointment, on his shoulder.

The left arm is bent, enabling the hand to support the base of the vase, while the right arm is extended so that the hand can grip the handle of the receptacle.

The vase is decorated with geometrical and floral motifs, as well as with a frieze displaying alternating plants and leaping calves. The servant's head leans forward under the weight of the vase.
