Lira da Braccio with a Mouthful O' Babies

The lira da braccio is an obsolete Renaissance stringed instrument.  There is an image of a decorated lira da braccio in Richard Huber's Treasury of Fantastic and Mythological Creatures that I've been using as a source for several years.

This is my third lira da braccio clay piece.  This one has a mouthful of babies.  I think it looks more like it's vomiting up a mass of babies than actually consuming them.

My first lira da braccio piece with the original image.   
It's for sale here.
