The runners are drilled through to take threads which are tied around cross boards. Dogs: Average length is 4.5 cm, four in ivory (c, d, f, g), one in steatite (e). Reins appear to be cotton string, harnesses may be hide. Faces detailed with incised mouths and nostrils, tail positions differ in each, eyes and ears are in various expressions.
