This example is on a conical base decorated at the bottom with four concentric grooves; the support is tapered and decorated with a number of rings. The inside of the base has been hollowed and shows signs of wood turning on a lathe, similarly the support and also underneath the platform. There are signs of rat gnawing at the edge of the platform.
