A fantastical water creature, partly akin to a lamprey due to the wide sucker-like mouth, and partly akin to a dragon due to long narrow wings on each side of its slender body. It has a closed eye on one side and on the other a rich-red knotted and pointed, gouged eye socket. A pointed tail is bent and tucked under its belly. The upper and lower areas of the body are patterned with scale-like gouge marks. Tinting is used to enhance the wings and belly. Its internal story is associated with King John s unfortunate reign and his death that, some say, was caused by a surfeit of lampreys. Shakes along the length of the carving are an accepted part of the work. The sculpture is finished with teak and Danish oil.
