Description
Exhibitions

The small metal piece depicts four figures, three of which are standing and one is possibly riding an animal. The two figures on the proper right appear to be wearing religious clothing, one is carrying a shepherd's crook and both are wearing dress-like garments.

It is dark grey metal with very little detail.
