Interest was recently shown in this small terracotta animal, that appeared at the rear of a photo on an unrelated subject.
I found it whilst digging the garden, many years ago, and gave it a good wash before I realised exactly what it was.
As for its age; I have no idea. It could just as easily be prehistoric as modern. There is a brand new Museum of Prehistory in a nearby village; I must take it down to them. If it proves to be old, it could be a very important object (such things are extremely rare), but I have my doubts.
