Being in a church, it may be an effigy of the devil as he appeared in Eden - a talking snake.
Lisl: Could be, Louis

An interesting depiction. I wonder what was in the mind of the artist who did this?
Lisl: I cannot imagine - you should have seen the other stuff!
Never seen anything like this before Lisl. Amazing!!!
Lisl: Isn't it just, Bill. I love finding stuff like this in Churches

It looks like an ammonite uncurling to reveal what is within...
Lisl: It does, Cherie!
