Figural form illustrating a proverb. A tubular element with a tiny human head each end is folded on itself and bound in the middle with a band accented with a tiny silver inlay. A variation on a common theme with these emphasizing that while we all have individual wants and needs, we have a common element in our humanism (sometimes characterized as a common stomach). Unusually complex and intricate for these. From the Sir Cecil Armitage Collection.
