Notes

This bannerstone is broken at the spine either because the stone is weakest at the thin surface of the spine or because it was intentionally broken at the spine as is common with bannerstones. This piece is exceptionally delicate and small and may have been a miniature. The carving is carefully done to accentuate the natural banding from the spine out to the edge of the wing.
