Two bodies, one face. I saw both of these strange carvings in the sestiere of San Marco The first is set at the angle of a wall, as you can see. Is that a head between its front legs? And what do you make of the rear of its body? (He’s got pigeon discouragers on his head).
The second appears on a patera fairly high on a wall. To me, the bodies are suggestive of rodents.
