They have bulging eyeballs, and their mouths are open to reveal two sets of fangs, teeth and a protruding tongue. Whiskers and hair tufts protrude from around their horned heads. They have hooved feet, scaly skin and upon their backs on an openwork cover a smaller similar sits; all on wood bases. One tail has old break.
