Bronze top of a tattoo stylus depicting the god Ganesh on his knees and holding his trunk in his hands.
He is dressed in a costume reminiscent of Burmese soldiers' clothing.
!!! IMPORTANT !!!
This stylus is composed of three parts, the upper part representing the character is ancient. See the picture.
The lower parts are seldom found. They were regularly changed because of their frequent use. It is therefore of importance to notice that both the shaft and punch are quite recent. (+/- end of 20th century)
