Head of Crozier

Below is a head of a Crozier or the head of a cane. It is from the 13th century, and was found  in southern Italy. The Crozier is shaped like the shepherd’s crook on a staff.  On the bottom part of the Crozier, there is a symbol of John Evangelist and a sign of office for a bishop abbot.  It is hard to tell on this picture but you do see the symbols on the bottom part of the Crozier, just not in detail. There is dragon facing a eagle in the middle of curve of the Crozier. The Crozier is made of ivory, and it has paint and glass on it as well. I  like the eagle facing the dragon, their glaring looks intense.
