Annotation
An anthropomorphic figurine in a shamanic costume, with anthropomorphic masks carved on the legs. A symbol of the sacred power of the shaman. The shaman's ancestor had an assistant - a tiger, which was considered a symbol of his twin spirit. A shaman kept the image of the ancestor in a pile house in a sacred place.
