The detail is to stare at, John. I wonder if the animals knew what they were looking at when they ate/drank from it?!
John Prior: No doubt this was purchased on some 'Grand Tour', Italy no doubt, I think it might be a tomb in actual fact. Thanks Ginnie

Fascinating carving John, well spotted & framed!
John Prior: Considering it is probably quite old, it has lots of definition, quality job. Thanks Fred
It must be a very artistic stone trough.
John Prior: I think so Brian, very well carved, it could have been a intended as a tomb.
Excellent detail. I'd love to know what the figure in the middle is saying. Cheers, Dave.
