Decoration At first sight, what appears to be a dual profile of a bearded man and an elephant with their heads attached but facing in opposite directions. At the tip of the elephant's trunk there is a scorpion. When the cast is turned 90 degrees anti-clockwise, there appears to be a second male profile, facing to the right and wearing a hat.
