physical_description
The slightly curved fragment from a cornice is decorated with by a six-leaved and eight-leaved rosette at either end. Between these, on the ground sits a winged putto in an attitude of royal ease, resting his left arm on his left knee with his other knee raised under his right arm which gesticulates towards the long-tailed bird which is perched on and pecking at an overturned drinking vessel with its slender claw.
