    This sculpture is very heavy and I an unsure of the medal. I can find nothing on the internet about her. The hand out with one finger up denotes something I am sure- really would like the help of a learned one. Thank you

      Wowzer this is brill! though I am afraid I don't know anything about it so hope someone can enlighten you about this mythical creature.

      One thing I found out if you search for say Thai Snail ---------, you will find that snails are very, very popular as beauty treatments in Thailand. There are pics of women with snails crawling all over their faces. Then there are legends about snails in a lot of Asian mythology. But this one, I'm sorry I gave up.

      Yes I see how popular snails are- just haven't found much beyond that. Thank you!
