    This is a beautiful Seashell, hand carved, it looks to be some kind of offering of a young lady, maybe he is picking one of his many wives, any ideas on this piece, there is even an infant on the lower left in a cradle, it looks to be a very old piece

      Is this King David?
      He had six wives and added Bathsheba a seventh.
      Jesus was said to be a descendant of Bathsheba.
