This item represents an uncommon compositional solution featuring the statuette of a ram, which is placed under the blossoming bush on a four-wheeled platform. The open-worked plant is decorated with colored glass-inlays and tiny birds. The ram's body is supposed to serve as a spice container, since the animal has a removable head.
