physical_description
A fragment of the cornice moulding showing two putti flying towards the right. They are naked but for a scarf over their shoulders which flutters backwards in the wind of their flight over their backs and down their fronts. They have bangles on their upper arms, wrists and ankles. The left hand one is holding a bag out in front of him, while his companion, whose arm has been damaged, holds out an object (also damaged) with a pointed bottom, which is perhaps an amphora-type vessel. The boys are carved above a simple leaf moulding on the edge of the coving.
