Could it be Argos?
And Argos is the God of what?
No, he doesn't look like a Venetian sailor.
It's Atlas, showing off, holding the globe one handed instead of on his back as normal. And the caption is:It was there a moment ago honest, OK stop messing about, who's nicked it?Nice plant.
Looks like a lily to me. Surprised Rog didn't get that.Argos isn't actually a god, it's a city, but the first king of Argos was Inachus, the son of Oceanus and Tethys, who was god of the river that was flowing in front of the walls of the city. I hope this helps.
I thought he might be Japanese but though I now know what netsuke are, I couldn't find anything remotely like him.
I think Dave wins this round.
Do I get a prize?
Dave: I could courier you the original "Mask of Agamemnon". It might come in useful with your line of work.
