Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy finial or figurine in the shape of an ibis holding a snake in its feet, and probably dating from the Post medieval or Modern period, about AD 1700 - 1900. Thebird is three dimensionally moulded. It has folded wings, a strongly curved long beak and its scaly legs are tucked up beneath the body. In the talons it grasps a snake, perhaps a cobra as it seems to have a hood. One end of the snake is in the bird's beak. The other end extends downwards and is broken. This is the only break visible on the object, so it is presumed that the snake's body was the only point of attac…
