Commentary: Schematic dipinto of a human head, possibly male, located in the lower right quadrant of the back wall of Bay 11. The head is depicted in profile, with a prominent and round forehead, long pointed nose, small mouth with a triangular upper lip, and an oval slanted eye. The upper part of the head is faded, so it difficult to recognize any hairdo.
