Wooden anthropomorphic one-legged figurine with a rounded back, flat chest and stomach. In the center of the front part of the figurine (from the chest to the lower abdomen), a recess is made between two five-fingered paws. On the face, the nose and mouth are clearly marked with carvings; eyes are beads. The sevokha costume consists of: red deer skins (“outerwear”), leather caps and a bib with lizard drawings. Models of a bow with an arrow are attached to the strap on the back. In mythology, the patron spirit of hunting was considered the first ancestor and cultural hero. Such figurines were made according to the instructions of a shaman. Abstract by V.V. Gorbacheva
