The little cups beside each bird look like they might hold candles. The figure has a curved sword in his right hand, pointing to his head. In his left hand he holds a severed head. There are what look like numerous wagon wheels, and near the bottom, two double-headed birds. Possibly eagles? It's brass, I think, has no makers marks, and each section is held to the one above with small nails, bent at the tip, instead of hinges. The figure itself reminds me of Colonial era funerary art for some reason. Anyway, it's like nothing I've come across before, and I haven't had any luck with Google.
